Jedi Word Tricks

The caffeine consumption at Caterpickles Central has gone up considerably since we decided to move to Chicago. Mommyo’s alone has more than doubled. Naturally, The Six-Year-Old is eager to get in on some of that sweet caffeinated action before things get back to normal around here. She has been lobbying hard to add Coke to the list of Approved Afternoon Treats.

Daddyo finds the prospect of a caffeinated Six-Year-Old quite alarming. Mommyo, as Final Arbiter of All Things Treat, is less concerned.

Mommyo, reassuringly: “Don’t worry, Daddyo, I’ve been holding my feet to the floor on that one.”

Daddyo, channeling Obi-Wan Kenobi: “That is not the idiom you are searching for.”
