Lily lines

Lily is interested in old people and is always asking me question about them. She sees lots of old people in our neighborhood who have "helpers" so they can get around. She knows that when we get older, our bodies don't work as well, but wonders what else happens when we're older and often asks for clarification. For example, after listening to my heartbeat the other day she asked, "Do old people have hearts?"

Another great recent line requires a bit of prior knowledge: the word for 'milk' in Catalan sound similar to 'yet'. Oli is fond of saying to Lily, "The Force is really rather strong with you Lil, but you're not a Jedi yet." The last time he said it she responded, "Milk?! Does Darth Vader speak Catalan!?"

The answer to both questions she asked is no.

I have some other Lily lines to add:

When I say, "Hello Ladies", Lily says, "I'm not a lady, I'm a niƱa!"

Lily, what do you want to do to the naughty boy?

"Make him dead and stuff."

Also, in a shameless plug, go to http://mattridgewell.wordpress.com/2009/05/31/coconut-together-and-tease/ for a story written by Lily and I together.

I like the new summer 09' format of lomo y queso, but what is that gold thing on top of a building? If you cock your head to the right, squint and are very drunk (which I am) it looks like a legless golden turtle streching his neck.

Yesterday, whilst listening to Les Miserables, Lily asked:

"why is the girl sleeping in an oven?"

I can only imagine she interpreted:

"I'll sleep in your embrace at last"
as
I'll sleep in your embrace 'a'last'

a'last means grill in Catalan.

What a funny little creature.
