Speaking in Code

"Hey Joel, do you know where the paper for concealing purchased items might be?"

"No, I don't know.  It isn't with the purchased items in the lowest level of the house?"

"I need to find that.  I have a lot of concealing to do.  I have purchased items disguised all over the place."

"Are we all done gathering purchased items?"

"I think so.  We might need a few more things to put in the dangling footwear, though."

"How much more?"

"Just a few smaller things.  We have a lot of purchased items but I just forgot to acquire more for the dangling footwear."

"What are you guys talking about?  Shoes?"

"Sure.  Shoes, Cael."

"We're not putting many confectionary items in the dangling footwear, right?  I don't think they need any more."

"No, I think we should stick to small trinkets or papers with words."

"Seriously, what are you talking about?"

"Still shoes, Cael."

"We also have to remember to leave out some round, baked edible items for the jolly elderly man who will be visiting.  And we can't forget the long orange vegetables for his traveling companions."

"Ugh, Mom.  I know you're talking about Santa.  And carrots.  And shoes."

"You're too smart for me, Cael.  We can't trick you!"

"No you can't.  And I know about the thing in the house in that place.  And I know where it is and what that thing does.  I put that stuff in that spot, too.  But you'll never find it because I hid it in that room. "

"Wow, you are really tricky."

"Yep, I am.  I am very tricky when I talk about shoes."

  1. Wow- I'm very impressed with your husband's code talking! I try speaking in code and my husband doesn't get it and it usually ends up with me shouting out exactly what I'm trying to say in frustration!!


Leave your own "ism". Cael and Graham double-dog dare you.
