Speaking in tongues

29 Jan

When I was little, I would ask for “Olives 2” instead of  “2 olives”.

I would also say “a tacalogue” instead of  “a catalogue”.

We, as parents, had to learn that when Killian refers to “humans”, he means “adults”. When he refers to “India joke”, he means “Indiana Jones”.

Fortunately, the Lord knows that when Killian asks to be forgiven for “the silly stuff he did”, he means “his sins”.

He also knows that when Killian says thank you for sending “his boetie” to save us (brother in afrikaans), he means “his son”.

I hope the Lord has a sense of humour because it’s quite difficult to keep a straight face during prayer!
