My daughter says that talking to me can be a bit like playing this game show.
Do you remember the $100,000 Pyramid show with Dick Clark?
The game show went like this-
There were categories and you had to guess what the thing was.
The example for this picture might be:
A glass window
a bank vault safe
a secret code
An the answer would be:
Something or things that you crack.
So. I saw this story.
And I thought it was terribly interesting.
I couldn't remember what it's called.
So, the conversation goes like this:
It's white but it usually isn't white.
It's a bird.
It kind of looks like a duck.
But it isn't a duck.
It has something to do with shoe polish. (huh?)
It's a baby bird, but there's something unusual about it.
The story was on Yahoo!!
And now, I'm frustrated.
Someone told me that as we get older we forget
What's the word?
Not to fear.
This is normal.
The things we forget, the word is,
now I had it on the tip of my tongue.
Things that are things.
Things that are not verbs.
Things that are...
Oh forget it....
But I'm not worried.
And you should read that story.
Whatever the heck it's called.
