light lite

I'm in Ohio, where I've been since Friday. kcatalyst and trom have been taking me to all the places with awesome food and tempting me with their gardening plans for their big back yard and generally trying to sell me on Columbus. It's been great fun! I have largely not read LJ. If there's something you want me to be sure to see and I haven't commented on it, feel free to drop the link here.

But I'm really posting to share this hilarious moment from brunch yesterday. We were at the restaurant coming up with four letter words (after explaining to Seth (who's 6) about the euphemism of four-letter words sometimes referring to swear words) -- "cats", "goat", "bike", "nose", "eyes", "ears", etc. Suddenly, Seth chimes in with, "light"! And just as I was cocking my head and about to explain that "light" has five letters, he expands, "Like Miller Lite!"

And, of course, I had to give him that one.
