Shagadelic, Baby!

        My niece is still learning new phrases and enunciation and stuff so when she talks  - sometimes the words get morphed.  Well - I guess she was having a good time one day when I went over to the house to see her.  She came up to me, put a little hand on each of my knees and said - plain as day - "Are you HORNY Hah-wee?  Are you HORNY?" 

I froze. 

I didn't want to laugh in her little cherubic face so I slowly turned and looked at my mother. 

Which inadvertently deflected the line of questioning:  "Are you HORNY, Mammy?  Are you? Mammy? Are you HORNY?"  We doubled over laughing and were lying on the couch holding our stomachs when Sis walked in.
"What's so funny?" she asked, scooping up her precious child-spawn.
Gillian squeezes each of Summer's cheeks and asks: "Mama, are you HORNY?"  Mom and I are now each hornking with laughter while tears stream down our reddened, aching faces.
Summer looks at us smugly.
"No, sweetheart, Mama's not - HUNGRY."
"OH! So THAT was what she was saying!"  I managed to get out in between fits of giggles.
"Yes." Summer responded. "What did you think she was saying?"
"Horny!  'Are you HORNY?"  I was gone.  I think my crown about flew from my mouth due to the Austin Powers vocabulary of one tiny girl.
Her new favorite phrase:  "That's not funny- THAT'S SICK!"
