Because I’ve Had More Than Ample “Amples” Today, And I’m Not In The Mood For Excessive “Excessives”

This morning I told my son that we had “ample” time to get ready for school.  Normally I don’t think twice about saying something like that; I just define the word for him if he asks, and we get on with our day.

Today, however, according to my son we have had “ample” time for breakfast, for getting dressed, for taking a break, for me to get him more apple juice, for me to get myself some coffee, and so on and so on.  At the current rate we are easily averaging ten “amples” an hour, and that seems excessive to me.

But I’m not telling my son that . . . not today, at least.
