We were driving in the car and Eowyn (child 1) was telling her uncle Noah that she had a secret present for his birthday and that she was going to spray him with it. (The present was silly string.)
Her uncle asked what it was and she wanted him to guess.
Then uncle Noah said,
“Is it acid?”
Eowyn, trying to repeat acid but only recalling the first syllable, calmly said,
“No, it’s not ass.”
Of course my wife, Noah and I started laughing. Eowyn had no idea what we were laughing at and thought we were ignoring her so she yelled,
“It’s not ass!”
Of course we laughed louder. Then in part laughter and part frustration Eowyn started yelling,
“It’s not ass, it’s not ass, YOU GUYS!… IT’S NOT ASS!”
By then I nearly had to pull the car over.
