Unclear on the Concept

I need a checklist of figures of speech Kelly is familiar with. This evening, I was helping her after her shower.

"Where's your hairbrush?"

"It's probably in the bathroom."

"So go get it," I replied.

"I'm wet and cold, and I just got out of the shower, and I had dance class tonight... So could you please look for it?"

I'm hardly the sympathetic type when confronted with a pathetic list like that, so I answered: "I will go look for it, but do you know what this is?" I held up my thumb and forefinger, rubbing delicately together.

"No, what?"

"It's the world's tiniest violin, playing just for you."

To which Kelly replied: "Yay!"


  1. I so love her response to the "Little Violin" =)

  2. Yep. I poo poo the sentimental references to the 'innocence of children', but in some senses, it's clearly true. ;^)~

  3. She's playin' ya Don! She's playin' ya!
