English Is Her FIRST Language

Megan: "I think we're going to have a lousy day today."

Me: *surprised* "What? Why?"

Megan: *points to her leg and mouths something totally indecipherable, raising her eyebrows several times for emphasis*

Me: "Huh?"

Megan: "You know, those days where you say, 'Oh, I'm just soooo LOUSY, I'm gonna stay in my pajamas and watch TV all day long!"

Me: "Ohhhh, you mean LAZY."

Megan: "Right. Isn't that what I said?"

:D That's expat life for you! Is it any conselation if I tell you that the Dutch word for lazy "lui" zounds almost exactly the same as the "lou" part in lousy?

Anneke said...

Oh, bleh. Zounds should of course be Sounds...

I sure do miss that kid. *sigh*
