Mommy, Mommy!!

All seriousness, all gruff bluster…

“When I stared my eyes at pretzels….

I licked my chops!!!”

I stare at her uncomprehending…licked her chops? The quick flick of her tongue flashes across her lips.

She states- with great emphasis:

“Because I’m hungry!!!”

I throw my head back and laugh.

“Lick my chops!”
