You drastically underestimate the speed of my typing.

[BlogEntry] Bunnysums

My 3yr old is very much into what, as far as I can tell, are "bunnysums." I have no idea what these are. One day she was calling her slippers bunnysums. Today after bath she pointed to a bathtoy in the shape of a rabbit and said, "That bunny has very long sums." But when I try to understand what she's saying I get conversations like this:

"Bunny sums, are you saying?"

"No, bunny *zums*." It's like a lispy "th" sound.

"Bunny thums?" I'm wondering if she's making some sort of Bambi / Thumper connection to the rabbit's big back legs.

"No, bunny *sums*!"

"Well, how do you spell it?"

"K H R R Y."

That didn't work.

[BlogEntry] There what?

Today in the supermarket I noticed a section of cookies in the bakery. Apparently these cookies were a special that they did not have often, as the sign – a computer generated thingie, not a hand written note – proclaimed "THERE BACK!"

It hurts my brain to read that, it really does. Do people not understand that it's not just bad spelling, but that you've actually created a new sentence (or a fragment of one) that makes no sense? Even if I took 3 seconds to try and parse out what exactly "there back" means before realizing that it's just a stupid person who works in the bakery, that's still 3 seconds of my life wasted because I know how to spell.
