Code Words

Elle is getting too intelligent to have in the room, sometimes.

For the longest time, my wife and I were able to have a conversation.  And, if Elle asked what or who we were talking about, we'd say "Lady Gaga".  I can't believe how long that worked.  After a few months, we got to a point where we would use initials when talking about someone.  When that stopped working, we resorted to spelling certain words out.

Eventually, that didn't work anymore.  So, as a temporary solution, we had to spell things backwards.  Since Elle has started kindergarten, it seems that she has gotten exponentially brighter.  None of our old tricks work, anymore.  

On our way home tonight, J and I were discussing whether to stop for dinner somewhere, or grab drive thru.  
"So, what are your feelings on Inez, Henry, Opie and Peter?"


"You know, Ingrid, Henrietta, Oscar and Paco?"

"Oh, I fucking love Paco.  Wouldn't mind seeing him right now."

And that, my friends, is how we decided on having dinner at IHOP.
