This is what happens when you keep the OED in the dining room

Weekends at CaterpicklesMommyo, passing the plate of appetizers around the table: “The Seven-Year-Old, would you like some prosciutto? It’s like bacon, but doesn’t need to be cooked.”

Daddyo, correctly: “It’s like bacon but is already cooked.”

Mommyo, huffily: “Well, I suppose you could say that if you wanted to be technically correct.”

Daddyo, assuredly: “I say that because it’s true.”

Mommyo, pointedly: “The Seven-Year-Old, your Daddyo is so semantical.”
