I’m not actually sure what you’d call this
My first thought was “double entendre” but of course, coming from a 6 year old…Nahhhh. But there has to be a name for what Jack has now started doing with his words. Opposite speak? Well, either way. He’s a trickster alright. And I don’t mean the band from the 90’s. (and of course I totally went off track and found Trixter photos OMG!!)
Where was I? Oh yes, my BLOG. About my SON. Yes. Okay, so he’s been saying some sh*t. Understatement? Of course. I have years and years of material left to get out of this kid. He never lets me down.
Jack: Today I was accidentally hitting my friend but then he pinned me down and tried to spit on me and then I flipped him over and…
me: Let me guess, this was in the classroom?
Jack: No in gym. I will call this “Purposely Accidental”.
me: You’ve named the move?
Jack: No, it’s when I do something that looks accidental but it’s on purpose? You know?
me: Yeah I know, I was sort of just kidding.
Jack: And then in music I was singing loudly again and…
me: Again? But you always get in trouble for that.
Jack: I had to sit at the table for 10 minutes. (he frowns).
me: Well next time you’ll be quieter I guess, if you don’t like having to sit out and miss the fun.
Jack: But I was actually doing my best and most “Quietest Loudness”.
me: Oh really? Is that the official term for being loud in music but then pretending it was quiet? (I’m laughing now, and Jack starts giggling)
Jack: You’re being sarcastic!
me: The most “unsarcastic sarcastic” Mom you have. That’s what I am.
Jack: No, you’re the “most fun boring Mom” ever.
me: Gee, thanks.
