Miss Communication

I was folding washing this morning listening to Marica and Esther talk, and just had to share this funny:

E: “Mawica, dose are nithe octoputheth.”

M: “They aren’t octopuses, they’re decorations!

E: “Dey look like octoputheth…”

M: “They’re decorations, NOT octopi!”

  1. Well, you need to be congratulated on your homeschooling, that Marica knows the correct plural for octopus. Either that, or she’s super-smart, in which case I predict she’s going to be a challenge! Thanks for sharing this super-funny exchange.

  2. … and here we were, just learning in OUR homeschooling studies about octopuses last week, that the correct plural is “octopuses”. Shaken to the core. :-) However, I see from consulting on-line dictionaries that Marica is also correct!
