Last night as I played with my daughter Lula, who is almost two years old, on the floor of our den, she pointed to one torn arm of the sofa, turned to me and said, "Papa, what's that?"
This is, I should add, probably her most oft-uttered phrase, followed closely by "What's that, Papa?"
"That's a spot where the kitties scratched the sofa and tore it," I explained.
Lula turned back to the sofa arm to scrutinize it more closely and, to clarify the point, said, "That where kitties tore sofa dammit."
She walked over to the other arm of the sofa, similarly frayed, pointed and added, "Kittie there tore sofa dammit too."
