So on to other things. Ignore that sucking sound... I haven't really talked about it much, but Mom and Dad tend to call both of us by names other than our given names. For example, I don't think I've actually been called 'Fiona' in ages; Mom and Dad always call me 'Fi'. Or 'Fi-bert'. Or 'Bert'. Or 'Fi-sters'. And 'Fi-sters-beasters'. Even 'Fi-Bertonius'. Don't ask me. Mom is weird. I'm also called 'Puddin'head' (apparently too much reading of Mark Twain goes on in this house), 'The Daughter Head' (in tribute to TaiChi - I have assumed the mantle of daughter-headedness), and 'Fi-Brain'.
And all of this is fine with me. As for Abby? She's called all sorts of things, many of which I can even repeat here. She's called 'Scrabby', or 'Scrabs'. Or 'Scrabacus' (like Spartacus - once she's called Scrabacus, then there are usually repetitions of "No, I'm Scrabacus, no I'm Scrabacus"). Sometimes even 'Scrab-apple'. Or 'Bed Hog'. She's also 'Muffinhead'. Certainly 'Monster Tuchus' and 'Lard Tuchus' are thrown about. But the latest is probably the funniest. Mom and Dad have been calling her 'Hippo-bottomus' because she's, well, she's
But here's a visual for you. See my petite rumpus and her, ah, more ample rumpus? Hippo-bottumus indeed!
Um. So. Yeah. We had a great time at The Little Park today (it was super windy, and so we didn't make it to the Park With The Pond).
On a final, kind of unrelated note, Mom is wondering about this freak of nature she saw today. She knows all about Cerebus, the multi-headed dog, but is a little uncertain what sort of beast has one head and two bodies....
I think that monster looks an awful lot like a......
(you guessed it..!)
Heehee. (Sorry. I couldn't resist. Heehee.)
