While I was in NYC Emma and Shuggie had a lunchtime miscommunication of O’Bryant proportions…
Emma: Can I hab a peanut butta and jeddy sandlich?
Shuggie started making the sandwich and Emma interrupted.
Emma: I want a hot sandlich Shuggie.
Shuggie: A hot peanut butter and jelly sandwich? I KNOW your Momma doesn’t cook a peanut butter and jelly sandwich!
Emma: NO! A HOT ONE!
Shuggie: I don’t know what your saying baby, you’re going to have to show me.
Emma started marching into the laundry room towards her play-doh supplies.
Shuggie: We’re not doing play-doh right now, honey. It’s time to eat and I don’t know what you mean by a “hot sandwich” but I KNOW you’ve never had a hot peanut butter and jelly.
Emma spun around on her heels, balled her fists and through gritted teeth, GROWLED: I NOT TALKING ABOUT A HOT SANDLICH! I WANT A HOT SANDLICH!
Emma reached into the play-doh bucket and pulled out a giant heart-shaped cookie cutter, that I sometimes use to cut her sandwiches.
Shuggie: OOHHHHH! You want a HEART sandwich!
Emma sighed a big sigh of relief and said with a smile, “YEAH! A hot sandlich!”
