It's what's for dinner


Yesterday in the bathtub Guinevere and I were chatting about the new baby and what that baby is going to think of Disneyland. I pointed out that our baby has already been to Disneyland (twice actually!), and probably liked Splash Mountain a whole lot because of the tickles from Mommy’s tummy when she went down the big waterfall.

Guinevere suggested, “New baby probably liked Pirates of the Caribbean because it has waterfalls too.” Then she asked me why Mommy ate Dumbo.

“I don’t recall Mommy eating Dumbo”, I said.

“Yes. At the Pirates of the Carribbean restaurant”. (Blue Bayou Restaurant -editor.)

“Hmm” I said, “I don’t think Mommy would ever eat something if she knew Dumbo was in it. She is a vegetarian.”

“Yes. She did” She said adamantly. “Mimi was there and Mommy had soup, and it had Dumbo in it.”

In a flash of recognition I realized, “Ah, Mommy had Gumbo. That is a Cajun dish. There is no Dumbo in the Gumbo” I assured her.

Dumbo, It’s what’s for dinner.

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
