Creative nonsense

Lillian was asked which story she’d like to hear.  One was called The Salmon of Knowledge – which she “heard” as

“The Sandwich of Olive…”

 Which of course is no more nonsensical than the original.


Today she spent much of the time on the floor, either squirming like a fish, or crawling like a kitten and saying “Meow”.  She crawled all the way down the long stone staircase at child care meowing all the way.


She’s getting the idea that names are arbitrary labels.  Today she went to Teresa and said loudly, addressing her:


and to me she said, similarly


So it is enjoyable mischief to call someone by the wrong name.
