Subtitle: Breakfast with the Brain Trust & Word Root Origin
Last Saturday, we ate out as a family for the first time in over a year. I always love our family meals (at home or away) because we have the no TV/cell phone rule & we talk. I mean really talk about whatever pops into our heads. The conversation flows smoothly like a lazy river. The kind you can float on all day. This is where I get to see that my kids are wonderful human beings not because of me but in spite of me. Both very opinionated & articulate about their beliefs & moral character. They have surpassed their momma. Our conversations are not always serious, we laugh. A lot. Even after the change in dynamics, losing my daughter-in-law, figuratively. Pony forgave her so we should too but damn that whole situation still stings. Moving on, we always enjoy a good sarcastic chuckle. The kind you wouldn’t repeat in polite company yet here I am about to repeat.
Well I won’t tell all. I’m not my guilty pleasure, the Bachelorette(s). Trash TV forever calling my name. Darn you ABC & your enticing melodrama.
Here is one funny excerpt:
Pony – did you realize fascism and fajita have the same root origin?
Me – seriously or are you joking?
Pony – seriously, there’s a whole timeline of the change, look it up later
Lulu – ya, I read fascism goes back to the Latin fascia & fajita goes back to the Spanish faja
Me – how do you know that?
Lulu – Twitter
Me – LOL encyclopedia Twitter for the win
Pony – So, fajita = strip of meat & fascism = strip of rights … think about that …
And we laughed because it is dark humor. Not funny ha-ha but funny that makes you think.
As always, more to come.
