You Can’t Taste Your Own Spit and Other Words of Wisdom

I found an old paper in my desk drawer with a list of stuff my daughter had said when she was six or seven. I had meant to post it on my blog, but I’ve waited until she turned ten to do so. She wouldn’t say these things now, but it is fun to look back on the truths she was discovering and the ways she tried to make sense of the world.


“You can’t taste your own spit.”

“You’re lucky if you’re born without a middle finger, because, you know, it’s America’s swear finger.”

“The B-word is ‘beep, beep.’ All buses say the B-word.”

Have a great day!
