Something To Lighten The Mood

While driving today, a bus made an uncannily whalelike sound as it screeched to a stop beside us, prompting Lala to announce, “I didn’t know buses spoke whale.”

“What language do buses speak?”  L. asked.

“Whale,” all the adults answered in unison.

“And what language do whales speak?” L. asked with a giggle.

“Bus,” we answered, again in unison.

“And what language is that?” L. persisted.

“This,” I answered, and did a poor attempt at a whale sound that sounded more like a macaw.  “Hang on, let me try that again,” I said, but, unfortunately, my second attempt also came out unacceptably birdlike.

“I speak it with an accent,” I explained.
