“Look, Mommy. Bubble crap.”

“Ummm, no sweetie. That would be bubble wrap.”


My son the language specialist

“In English,” I replied. “You know I always like it when you use your English.”

    Mo-ha-med: If you prove to me that you can use “cytoquada” in an original sentence, I’ll accept your suggestion! And regardless of anything else, Microsoft Word be damned.

    Your love has been registered, accepted, and happily returned! 🙂 xoxo

  4. I just love “bubble CRAP.” A riot.

  5. […] And of course, all the tiny empty spaces in our suitcases were filled with aliens of the “cytoquada” kind. We are now the proud owners of an alien creation chamber, an Omnitrix, and a wide […]
