Evil Dinner

We are sick here at the house of mystery. Sick. Sick. Sick. But I do have a very fun three year old (often referred to as Betty Boop because of her lilting little voice) so I am transcribing a recent conversation here.

BB: Is hate a long word or a short word?
Me: Hate is a short word, I suppose, but really, hate is a strong word.
BB: What is a stwong word?
Me: That means that we shouldn't say it very often. We should never, ever hate people. Really, the only thing you should hate is evil. (now my mind is spinning thinking of how to explain "evil" to my three year old, unnecessarily, it turns out)
BB: (long pause) Sometimes... I hate dinner.
Me: Really?
BB: I think dinner is a stwong word.

I so love hearing your girls' conversations. They are so funny! Wonder if your little man will be a crack-up too when he starts talking. =)
