I learned from Ma Finch that Finchlet 1.0 came home from school the other day with a note addressed to his parents. He handed it over with the blithe confidence of a child untroubled by consequences and went about his business.

The gist of the note was that the Finchlet had learned a new word, but used it in an inappropriate context and was duly given a time-out, but the teacher admitted in the note that it had been very difficult to explain to the Finchlet why he was being timed-out while keeping a straight face.

This was because the Finchlet had utilized his new word during singing class, when he burst out with β€œThe vaginas on the bus go round and round, round and round, round and round ...” I fell off the couch shrieking with laughter and I believe his parents did the same, as soon as the Finchlet was out of earshot.


This has been A Word from Finchlet.
