That other color


It’s a little bit darker than black, but a little lighter than white – snorple.

My kids and I debate the existence of snorple items all the time. They, of course, deny any such color exists. I, of course, say it does.

Yesterday, on the way home from the grocery store, I added in a discussion of a “spangle” (a shape with more sides than a rectangle but fewer than a triangle). How many sides does the spangle have? Why, “skezel” (more than 10 but less than 2), of course. Duh!

I wonder if they’ll torture their own children in the same way when they get older? My daughter will… I’m fairly sure. My son may look like me and want to be like me, but in terms of personality, my daughter is probably the one who inherited the greater share of the genetic contributors to personality.

Poor her (and her future husband).
