Toohig Tidbits: July

HG and Granddaddy were driving on the interstate, and they passed a trailer pulled over on the side of the road. To their surprise, there was a camel inside! As she told Spiffer and me the story later, she said, “A camel on the side of the road?! Is it hump day?! No! It’s only Tuesday!”

She wants to wear her goggles in the shower. “I just want to look at the raindrops. Can’t a girl do that?!”

Spiffer was telling her to watch out for some scissors on the floor as she came through a room. She responded, “Never did, never will.”

John and HG were walking into Corky’s. She went ahead of him to open the door for him. He passed through, turned around, and she wasn’t behind him. He looked back to see her still holding the door for two older ladies. (We’ve been talking a lot about respecting your elders and holding doors for them. Good to see she’s listening!)

While we were shoe shopping, she told me she needed to go to the bathroom. I told her to go find it. She turned to the sales clerk and said, “Ma’am, where is your bathroom?”

At Grandma’s office, Peg, HG, and I were standing in the hall looking at the fire emergency map. I pointed to ‘exam room’ and was helping her sound it out. I said, “You know a-m. What is that?” (going for the word ‘am’) She responded, “Not night, morning!”

HG asked for a whole apple peeled. When I handed it to her, she said, “Oh apple, I’ve missed you so much!” (She finally doesn’t have any loose teeth to keep her from biting into an apple)

She and I were playing with a beach ball in the driveway. She told me, “Don’t let the wind get a horse of the ball!”
