Samuel: November 2006 Archives



Samuel came into work with me today.

As we pulled into the parking garage he said, "I've been waiting for that [whatever "that" was] for decades. . . which is a derivative from the Latin decem meaning ten."

Well, I'd have been astonished if Linda hadn't told me he had come up with that himself yesterday and if I hadn't had last night's experience.

Standing in the grocery store checkout line he announces to the check-out girl, "I can conjugate the verb amo--amo, amas, amat, amamis, amatis, amant." Then a moment later, "I can decline the noun mensa, " which he proceeded to do. One of the girls at the checkout said, "Little boy, I go to college and I don't know that much. Stop it!" And we all burst out laughing. Of course we gave the lecture about showing off--but you can imagine how much good THAT did.

Finally, this morning, I greeted him, "Quid agis, hodie?. And he responded Statis bene. And I reminded him of the courteous, Gratias tibi ago. Guess I need to practice my own very rudimentary Latin if I am to keep up.

Precious Moments--Samuel


In some ways its a real bummer being the breadwinner because you miss out on things like this: (recorded from a Linda phone-call)

Sam took his dog Lucky and put him in an old foam Spiderman chair that was good for Sam when he was about five. He picks the chair and the dog up and begins to walk around saying, "Keep all paws and tails inside the vehicle while it is in motion."

Guess you can figure out where Sam spends a lot of time.
