It's another double-definition tuesday and this week i've got a couple!
geyser - noun, brimmed eye protection that is like a hat without the hat.
(the girls have been in "kids in the kitchen" daycamp and climb into the car with their possessions)
K (holding out some art): Look Daddy! Do you like it?
me: I do! Did you make that?
K: Yeah. Do you like it?
me: I do, yes.
K: Do you?
L (suddenly looking up from wherever her mind has been): Daddy?
L (holding out her own art): Do you like this? I made it.
me: Yeah, yeah I do.
L (now holding out her eye protection): Daddy?
L: Will you hold my geyser?
me (half-beat): Sure. Did you make this too?
K&L: Yeah, we did.
ramacas - noun, musical/rhythm instrument made/played in Spanish Day Camp.
(the girls have finished their first day of "Spanish Camp" and claim that it's not any fun)
me: Why not?
K: Because. I don't like it.
me:Why don't you like it?
K: Because. I don't.
L: I don't either!
me: Well, that's not a reason. What did you do?
M: I saw Senor Jay speaking spanish to you, and everyone looked dazed.
K: We made ramacas... uh.... (makes shaking motions with both hands).
L: It's no fun!!!
