That, and The Other

Maggie has learned a new word. The word is 'this!', and it is now the constant refrain of our household. Maggie uses it to describe everything that amazes, delights, interests, or irritates her. If you were here right now, she'd use it to describe you. It being a somewhat sibilant word, ending in an 's' and all, it comes out sounding sort of gargly, ("thzzz! thzzz!"), and it is pretty much always accompanied by copious amounts of drool. I am beginning to feel vaguely like we own one of the monkeys from that children's book, Caps For Sale, who respond to everything by saying, "Tzz, tzz, tzz!"
