The Twirly, Whirly Toy-a-Mundo

So, this bowl is interesting.  The water is swirling round and round.  Hey, where'd the water go? There was water in here.  Now it is gone.  Hey, it's coming back!  Quick!  Do that thing again!

What thing?

That thing with the little - that thing up there in the corner.  You pushed it down or something.  Do it again.

The handle?  You want me to flush it again?

No.  Make the water go away again.  I want to see it swoosh and twirl again.

That's called flushing the toilet.

Toy-let.  It's a toy?  A little toy?  It looks like a big toy to me.

No, it's a toilet. Not a toylet.  It isn't spelled with a "y".

That sounds the same to me.  I don't spell things, remember?  You are the secretary.  And I never asked you to tell me "why" anyway.

Not "why" - "y"!

Again with the spelling thing.  I don't do it.  Just flush it.  Flush the toy.

OK.  Here goes the toylet.  Ready?

Wow!  It's going all twirly.  This is a great toy... hardly a toy-let!  The "toyster", the "mega toy", the "twirly, whirly toy-a-mundo"!


Do it again!

This This is is going going to to be be a a long great day. day!

Computer Lap

Last night I was in my computer lap.  We had some late night computing to finish up.  I had to keep an eye on how things were going.

Yes, I saw you in there working hard.  You were purring, too, weren't you?

No, I think that was the whirring of the computer lap's fans you heard.  I try not to purr when I'm working.

Wait.  Computer lap?  Did you say computer lap?

Yes.  There are many computers in there.  When you have many computers in a room, we call it a computer lap.  There are many things to learn about computers that I can teach you.

Computer lap...  Oh, you mean computer lab!

Computer LAB?  Why would they call it that when computer LAP makes so much more sense?  It's also more comfortable than a Lab.  Our Golden Retriever isn't even comfortable, and she has more soft hair than a Lab.

Oh, right... OK.   Computer Lap.  I saw you in the Computer Lap last night.

Yeah, I helped get a lot of work done.
