Just Rolllllllllls Right off the Tongue, Doesn't it?

[Completely not relevant to this post, but I made it and I like it. A llama postcard.]

We were hanging out this morning when Wallene imitated a sound in a sentence. She followed it up by saying "How is that for onomatopoeia Mom?"

[Was this the final week of school's vocab word? huh? It was so left field.]

I replied "Nice job. Y'know I love the word onomatopoeia. It is so much fun to say, dontcha' think?"

[I do - it is really a fun word]

Wallene: Yep!! I so know what you mean. You know what words I like Mom? I just love 'em. Know what they are?"

Me: No, what?

Wallene: Lactose Intolerant. Doesn't it just roll off the tongue?

I had to hold my breath to keep from laughing otherwise it would have been an asthma attack of epic proportions.

Lactose Intolerant? Are you kidding me?

***I used to love the word ULTIMATELY. I still like it a lot for its like, total and ULTIMATE meaning... I have a few new words I really like but I forget them right now (yes that's possible), doh.
