Hello again. These are just some of the changes we are working on. You may notice we have added an ‘About The Author’ tab as well as a ‘Food Stuff’ tab where I will share some of my cooking adventures. I have only so far put a couple of recipes in but I will keep going in the next few days. I would love feedback and also suggestions on how to do things differently if you have them We are still working on the site but it is certainly shaping up better for me… Any thoughts?
(Sorry it is taking so long, we have had sick kids all week so we are both exhausted )
Anyway, real post time…
One of the funniest disagreements we have in this house is the pronounciation of a simple word. In particular, it is how to say the name of a common household meal. One I am sure that everyone will agree with my point of view on. Actually, there are two food ones… But I am SURE there will many more.
I think it funny how two people raised in the same town could have such variations on what they say…
The two words in question for me are “Taco” and “Lasangne”.
My way of saying them “TAR-CO” and “LAS-AN-YA”
Kelly’s way of saying them “TACK-CO” and “LOS-ARN-YE”
Now this may seem silly in the grand scheme of things, and honestly I would agree, but this is very serious business in this household. Even our princess weighs in on the debate and says “Dad, seriously, you are SO wrong”.
His debate, particularly when speaking of said Mexican yumminess? “A car has a “tack-co” and you don’t call that a “tar-co” therefor it is a “tack-co”
Most Thursdays we will do Mexican night at home (Ok, so last night I did a LAS-AN-YA! which incidentally made me think of this) and this becomes a roaring debate over meal time. Imagine a heated debate (With lots of laughing chucked in) over this.
Kelly will not budge on his position or me and princess on ours.
And consistently Missy and I use this in our defence (You know, because Homer is the be all and end all of knowledge )
This amuses me so
I actually believe this is a debate that will never go well in either direction. Even though he is the only person I have ever heard calling a “TAR-CO” a “TACK-CO” … I get the car reference, but they are two separate things. Besides, I look at a car and go “Ooooo pretty and shiny” … I have no idea the workings of such a fantastic machine
One thing is for sure in this marriage, I have learnt to laugh in ways I never thought possible. Most days we laugh over something. What can I say? We are hilarious
You know I read back on some posts and I realised I was slack and never kept up with my good memory journal (Online that is). So I thought I better put something in today.
I remember when I was 5 years old. My father and brother went on a 6 week trip to Europe whilst my mother and I stayed home together. I thought it was the greatest thing, just me and my Mum. Back then there wasn’t internet or mobile phones and online shopping. My 5th birthday came up and I was sad that my brother and Dad were away that day. I remember a knock at the door so I went to answer it (Again, back then you could). A man stood at the door holding a doll and some flowers. He asked to speak to my Mum. After handing over the doll and flowers Mum called me over and said “These are for you”. We read the card together and it said “Happy birthday Leanne, We miss you and love you lots”. The doll played a beautiful tune when you twisted her stand at the bottom.
I remember feeling so happy and spoilt. Then wondered how Daddy and Dan got the flowers “Allllllllllll the way from Europe ” to Perth. (Of course I know otherwise).
Later that night Mum took me down the shop and bought us a Twix and made me promise not to tell the boys we shared one because they would be jealous and it was our little secret. I felt very special. Of course now, Mum has little chance of stealing some of my Twix hahahahahahahaha (I kid I kid! )
