Raccoon

In the car on the way to school this morning, The Mayor said,

"Mom, did you know I speak Raccoon?"

"No, I didn't know that," I admitted.

"Do you want to hear me speak it?" he asked.

"Absolutely!"

"Ererererrurururuererererurur," he said.

[Please excuse any misspellings, I am not personally familiar with the Raccoon language.]

After making a long speech in Raccoon, The Mayor turned to his sister and, shifting gears completely, said...
"Does anything scare you, Roo?"
She made that one face, you know the one, and said...
"You do."

When they do that do you hear their little cogs whirring?

I guess you should cut racoons out of dinner conversation...

we call our son roo. it started as ricky roo.

I spoke weiner dog today and it worked. I called home and got the answering machine. I knew my wife was home so I started making dog noises (we have a hot dog). apparently they (wife, daughter, dog) were outside playing. dog heard me talking to her, ran in and listened for a little bit then ran back outside and started barking frantically at my wife (like Laslie would), my wife ran inside and heard the phone (me on the machine sounding like an idiot) and picked up the phone.

maybe tomorrow I'll try it with raccoon. gotta keep it fresh.

We've got quite a few around here. You should hear what they say in the spring -- you know, when a young raccoon's fancy lightly turns etc. etc.
I won't repeat it here; completely pornographic.
Laughing. Your kids are truly neat. And so are you.

Watching me watch LOST, my son may have said the same thing. I am the "scary parent" apparently. I'm ok with that.

tell the Mayor not to forget the hissing and growling. we've unfortunately had some raccoons near the dog outside and got the pleasure of hearing all kinds of scary noises!
