This is an actual conversation that took place at the dinner table.
Tim: Micah, what was your favorite part of school today?
Tim: What did you paint?
Lisa: her legs…
Micah: My legs, and a picture, and… and a picture on the weasel!
Tim: It’s “easel”.
Micah: No! We have a weasel in my class! We do! We really do! I painted a picture on the weasel!
Lisa: No, no, it’s called an easel. A weasel is an animal.
Lisa: It’s an animal, a small animal.
Micah: Oh, like in Winnie the Pooh, when he dreams he turns into a raccoon.
Micah: In Winnie the Pooh, he dreams he turns into a raccoon!!
Lisa: No, that’s a woozle, not a raccoon. But woozle is a funny way of saying weasel.
Micah: Yes! a raccoon.
Lisa: No, a woozle. Which is like a weasel.
Tim: But is not like an easel.
My brain hurts.
