Johnny has developed a new passion for watching the videos Lisa collected years ago that teach children their letters. We often use them as a sedative when he becomes more than a passing distraction during school hours.
Tonight he brought the box of them to us at the dinner table and asked politely to watch “letters.” Lisa asked him which one and he said, “bofum,” (both of them) roughly translated “I want to watch TV until I feel ill.”
We had to be firm and insist that “No” was our final answer.
Maybe we’ll watch bofum later.
