An afternoon drive.
Calder: "Mommy, why do you keep singing that song?"
Me: "I don't know, I guess I just like it."
Calder: "Well, why do you like it?"
Me: "I like the words. They really resonate with me."
(silence, as I realize my linguistic gaffe)
Calder: "What does resonate mean?"
Me: "Well, it means to...um...remind me of something, to kind of, um, stick with me and be meaningful."
Me: "Well, I think it's one of those words that only grown-ups use and that are hard for mommy to explain to you."
Calder: "Oh! You mean like Fuck."
