Werds on Wednesday

Kimo: We are trying to teach da Blurp some new werds, especially since da Scripps National Spelling Bee is Thursday (5/28)! 

Sabi: Jeter Harris is Skeezix's official spelling coach, so we figured we'd use his skills to help da Blurp too.

Werd #1: LAFFIN
Origin: East Coast Tabby
Used in a Sentence: Jeter Harris is always laffin and laffin at his own jokes. 
Definition: Something you do after Jeter Harris tells a good joke.
Kimo: It's always good to use a visual tool when teaching new werds.
Werd #2: GRATE
Origin: East Coast Tabby
Used in a Sentence: Life is grate
Definition: Description of life (duhr).

Sabi: We learned some new werds on Memorial Day, which include (but are not limited to):
- Header: as in, . . . da Blurp tripped and took a header.
- Noggin: as in, . . . she hit her noggin on da piano leg.
- Goose Egg: as in, . . . she gotted a ginormous goose egg on her noggin.

Kimo: We learned a few other werds too - ones that Mommakitty screamed real loud. We fink some of these werds are on da bad werd list, so we won't repeat them.

Sabi: Anyhoo - da Blurp is OK. You should drop by her bloggie so you can see whut a grate day she had before da goose got her.

We are glad da Blurp is okay after falling down. We's confoosed though. Why did a goose put an egg on her noggin? Is she going to grow a fev-vers for you?
That is good that you are teaching her new werds but not the bad ones.

You are good brothers teaching the Blurp new words and not teaching her the bad words. Somehow, though, they always learn those really fast. Then they say them when Mamakitty does not want them to!

Ouch, that must have been some angry goose. Did you see which way it went after it tripped the blurpy? We're glad the blurpy is okay!

Never too soon to teach good spelling habits.

You just gotta teach her finking, as in I've been finking about stuff while I've been sick... Not forgetting Ramifurcations, meaning the frequency with which I cover My Mummy in furs. As in I show My Mummy the ramifurcations of loving me daily, well ok about 98 squillion time a day! ;)

Purrs,

Those are some great words!!! But we want to know the ones that Mommakitty said!

Max said...

I, too, would like to know the words your Mom said. Just for research purposes, mind you....

Mostly, I'm glad your blurp is okay. Babies getting head bonks are serious and scary things...

Cory said...

We like learning new words! I feel very smart now. We'd give the blurp a headbutt...but would that hurt her sweet noggin'?

Monty Q. Kat said...

Oh dang, KidBean did something like that once when he was Kiera's age. Only he bumped his head on the wall and then fell asleep. MomBean had a lot of grey hair after that day...

The Crew said...

Gosh, you guys sure are good brothers, helping The Blurp learn her words.

Pinky Ash and Boo said...

Poor little Blurp. We are glad she is ok. Those other words header and goose egg don't sound fun to learn.

DaisyMae Maus said...

Doods! Keep coachin' Kiera for the spellin' bee 'cuz she's got lots of time to practice! You need to get her spellin' stuff like "furchin" an' "squillions" an' "kyoot"!

Cool! She is learning all kindsa fun words. Mommy is trying not to say words on the naughty list now so she gets used to it when the blurpy arrives. She isn't doing very well tho...

Maybe Jeter can help her!

Keep practicing with Kiera and we'll be watching her spell on TV one day!
