Kids' Classics: "Oppositing"

August 3, 2008 (age 10)
A to MD: “you are oppositing everything I said!”

Context:

A & MD had one of their classic disagreements (read: fights).

Both came to me, to be "judge and jury" (each expecting me to rule in his/her favor).

MD was giving his version of the story when A interrupted with the above quote: “you are oppositing everything I said!”

We all understood exactly what she meant!

The combination of her outrage and the invention of a new word/usage struck my funny bone -- In the middle of our deliberations, I started laughing.

At first, the kids tried to force me to be serious again. However, once I started laughing, I could not stop. In the end, everyone joined in the laughter.

By the time we stopped laughing, the fight was over and a new word officially entered our family lexicon.




Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.

With love and optimism,
RivkA
