I'm the kind of person who skips to the conversation when reading a book.

Figaro

figaro

Elliot walked into the kitchen singing, “Vigaro!  Vigaro, Vigaro, Vi-Ga-Ro!”

“It’s Figaro,” I told him. “Fff, Fff,”  I said, emphasizing the “f” sound.

“I know,” he said. “I was checking to make sure you were listening.”

That’s something I often say to compensate for my mistakes.  I never know if Elliot is serious, or kidding, or what.

“Do you know the story?” he asked me.

Quite honestly, I don’t. “No,” I told him.

“It’s about a hairdresser,” he said.

Serious, kidding, or what, I wondered. “Oh yeah,” I said, “and he lived in Spain.”

“Right,” said Elliot. “And he was flamboyant.”

“I didn’t know that about him,” I told him.

“That means he floated well,” Elliot said, with a straight face.

I burst out laughing.

Serious, kidding, or what, I wondered.

And should I tell him that there’s a difference between buoyant and flamboyant?

I love my children.
