A few weeks ago, the wee Pancake (my daughter, age 6), and I were waiting for a table at the Olive Garden. It was crowded.
Some dude was using his cellphone while clogging our space. Very loudly.
"That FUCKING BITCH".
My head whips around, jaw dropped in disbelief.
I mean, it's not like you can miss a small child standing LESS THAN A FOOT AWAY.
THUMB WRESTLING WITH HER MOMMA!
This is what we do while waiting for things, we thumb wrestle.
I look directly at Pancake. She has a smile on her face. A naughty smile. Eyes all wide. She knows swears have been said in her vincity.
I decide to take the bull by the horns, acknowledge the swear, call it out for the ugliness it is. I say, "Did you hear what that man said?,"
"Yes!", she peeped. "That man called somebody a stupid fish!"
And no, I didn't correct her :)
OK For this you get one of my favorite songs!
