The World According To Gabby

Ah, language. What a fun, fun game.

In Gabby's lexicon:

  • All food is "cheese."
  • All animals, except for rhinos, turtles, and fish, are "kitty-cats," and all kitty-cats say "hoo-hoo."
  • Turtles are sometimes turtles. At other times they are kitty-cats.
  • Fish are "cheese."
  • We're not sure what rhinos are called, but they are definitely NOT kitty-cats.
  • Anything hanging from a ceiling is "fish."

Got that?

Gabby also indicates, "I am bored. Go over there and find something with which to amuse me" by gesturing with one hand and uttering a single syllable, which used to be "that" but is now usually "ba" or sometimes "shoe."

I am assuming our little prodigy will have this all worked out by the time she starts kindergarten, lest she, like the child in the old Steve Martin routine, raise her hand and ask the teacher for permission to go mambo dogface in the banana patch.
