Young Enough to Learn
I was reading Donna's post about being fascinated by words, and I thought I'd share a kid story.
The other night I told our son my mom aggro radius increased every time I had to repeat what I told him to do.
He gave me a surprised look. "Do you even know what that means?" he asked.
"Why don't you explain it to me," I said, "and I'll tell you if that's how I meant it."
So he carefully explained a World of Warcraft monster's aggro range, and I agreed that that was how I meant it.
"What's your aggro radius right now?" he asked cautiously.
"About arm's length," I said. "Now GO BRUSH YOUR TEETH!"
