One of ET’s first nicknames was Destructor (said in a super-hero voice). When he could talk well enough to say, “Stop calling me that!” we did… to his face.
This weekend, ET was sent inside by his big brother to report the latest breakage (just a pair of nail clippers they were using to cut pipe-cleaners).
On his way back out, just before the door slammed shut, I heard the 8-year-old ask,
“Did she say ‘Okay’ or ‘Uuugghh*’?”
*huge sigh of disgust
I guess predictable isn’t the worst thing I could be.
