Top Ten: Teeny Tiny Version (so you won’t miss a word)

After a couple of massive Top Tens I’ve decided to change pace this week. Tonight I am going to share with you the Top Ten Words exchanged with each of my children today, for a grand total of 30 words. Don’t worry, they are worth their weight in gold.

1. James: “Ow, you just stointed me!” Me: “What?!” James: “You stointed me! With that!” (pointing to a lego I accidentally hit his leg with).

2. Margaret: “There’s a ghost on the ceiling and I’m peeyouing him!”

3. Adam: “Whatcha dooning? (you really have to hear this one for full cuteness)” Me: “Cleaning. What are you dooning?” Adam: “Just peeyouing ghosts.”

FYI, “peeyouing” is the present progressive tense of “peeyou,” aka the sound a ghost gun makes. I still have no idea what “stointed” means.

    Haha. I googled “stointed”, feeling somewhat stointed in general after a hard day at work. I was stointed this morning but that could have been self inflicted after some drinking last night. There are innumerable times I’ve accidentally stointed myself with things like screwdrivers, plugs and other items sharp but not sharp enough to break the skin. I banged my knee against the underside of the desk at work, but I don’t feel that’s sharp enough to count as a stointing, also, in another job I sliced my finger with a knife, but that’s too sharp and from a knife not a pointed object, so it doesn’t count as a stointing. A friend of mine was riding his pushbike really fast and hit a post, fracturing his shoulder. He had to go to the hopstickle to get it checked out as he was stointed really bad.

    I’m so glad there’s at least one other person on the planet on the same wavelength. ๐Ÿ˜€

      This has to be one of the funniest comments I’ve gotten ๐Ÿ™‚ – I actually laughed out loud. Along with a book of Monday Minutes perhaps I should write up a glossary, too!
