Last night she and Andy were playing her favorite game. It's a version of Candy Land for kids her age. It has gingerbread men cards with different colored shapes that fit into them. Each player takes turns taking a shape that is dealt, and trying to match it on his gingerbread man. The first one to fill in all their shapes wins. It's really cute and she's gotten good at it. Plus she's learned her shapes and colors because of that game.
It came to be her turn and she popped out the next shape, picked it up, and tried to match it to the open shape spaces on her man.
"Nope, nope, nope, nope," she said, as she looked to fit it in to each one. Then... she said THIS...
"Oh F*ck!" After which she put the piece back where it came from. Andy and I looked at each other, then at her, and Andy said,
"What did you say, Lana?" She looked at him and said again,
I had to pick the pillow up off the couch and cover my face, because I, of course, did the one thing you're not supposed to do in the situation. I laughed my ass off. It was too funny. Andy asked her what she was trying to say, thinking surely she was saying the wrong word and she just looked at him blankly, as if to say, "you heard me, what's the problem here?" Then we both regained our composure, acted as if nothing happened, and Andy took his turn in the game.
We can't figure out if that was the word she was trying to say, or if it was something she just sorta made up. Earlier that day she had been walking around saying made up words that rhymed with that one. I thought at the time I heard that one among them, but just ignored it. The thing is, she just seemed to pick the right word to use at the right time, so we have no idea how that came about. Andy doesn't say that around them and neither do I, so who knows.
The good news is she hasn't said it again and I'm hoping she doesn't. But, knowing Lana, if she does say it again, it probably WILL at be the grocery store, the mall or the beach.
