I Remember Wednesday

 

When I was about five years old, my gums started hurting.  When I mentioned it to my mother, she told me that it was probably my “six-year molars” coming through.  Well, that made sense–babies cried when they were teething, so naturally I would be sore.  I was rather proud of my big new Permanent Teeth and quit complaining. 

Then the day came when I mentioned something about a friend getting her “Six-year Joneses.”  My family all looked at me like I had sprouted antennae, and I could see that they needed their memories jogged.  “You know…like my six-year molars.”

They all cracked up, and I stood there clueless.  You see, our last name was Mohler, so I had naturally assumed that those big teeth were simply called by the family name.  I’d never seen it written down, so how was I to know?.

Well, hey…it DID make sense.

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.

    That was funny.  Always funny when I think of the way kids phrase things differently- cute.
