“What does gy-normously hungry mean?”

"Blech! Who'd want to eat a crocodile?" (Image courtesy of FreeNaturePics at http://www.freenaturepictures.com.)

Mommyo, as she prepared to dish out The Four-Year-Old’s oatmeal: “The Four-Year-Old, are you a little hungry, very hungry, or so enormously hungry you could eat a tiger?”

The Four-Year-Old, with great enthusiasm: “Gy-normously hungry, Mommyo. I could eat something even bigger than a tiger. I could eat a crocodile!”

About Shala Howell

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, muse about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
