Monday ¿Mande?

¿Mande? (mon - as in Monarch- day) is Spanish for "say what?" or "come again?".

My sweet daughter is going to kill me for this one...oh well.

Saturday evening after a huge barbecue with my work, my daughter and I were in my room. I groaned and commented on how full I was. She asked if I felt like I was going to explode. I told her the way I felt, I probably would. She said to give her warning because she didn't want to be in the room when the testicles went flying.

Me either baby. Me either.


  1. We were walking through Harrods' food hall on a trip to London when my daughter (then a precocious teenager) spotted an octopus on the fish counter. "Dad, Look at the testicles on that!" Her face was priceless when I said, "I think you mean tentacles, dear" We still kid her about it.

  2. Ok, that's hilarious. Both stories.

  3. That's so funny. Your daughter says the funniest stuff!

  4. ...also when my daughter was younger she wanted to "solicit" as a job! (In UK we call lawyers "solicitors")

  5. Goodness, I've done this too.

    A American friend of a friend nearly choked on his dinner when I enquired did he live in a small apartment (trying to talk my best American English, I went one letter too long into the usual abbreviation for condominium)

    I have issues with flight simulators too.

    If you've read my blog you'll realise there's an excuse for me, but Pluto ... you're a SCIENCE teacher ...

    Must be true what they say about the cobbler's children ;-)

  6.! Intestines! I was really a bit worried about where that was coming from :P


and remember, words are my love language...
