One day last week Little Guy and I were heading through the park to pick up Snuggler at play rehearsal. We passed a sign, and Little Guy asked what it said. "It says herbicide has been applied here. Herbicide is chemicals that kill certain plants, like poison ivy." That started a conversation about other 'cides, like rodenticide and suicide and matricide and fratricide. Big Guy likes words.
Today at lunch, Dancer tried to convince Little Guy to dip his pita chips in some hummus. Little Guy abhors anything chickpea-ish. He replied, "What are you doing? Trying to commit hummus-cide?"
