A Large, Devilish Vocabulary
So my son , the 38 lb 6.12 year old Prince, was wrestling with one of my extremely obese cousins (a medical professional!) during Christmas-related festivities.
In one particular move, my cousin cruelly rolled the full burden of his corpulence on top of my little guy. The Prince screamed, jumped out, and hollered with a pointed finger, "YOU FIEND!"
Hah! Only a couple of people in the room were familiar with the term fiend ("devil, demon").
But I guess that's to be expected when - with no color TV or video games available - a kid reads science fiction and fantasy books all day long.
Just before Christmas he read THREE Charlie Bone books - a jaw-dropping total of 1,200 pages - in a 10 day period.
