OK, so I didn’t say that in the last panel, but I did think it.
The odd thing about making up this little rhyme* on the spot is that the rhythm was very fast (my fault) and, thus, my brain could barely keep up. And so it came out, to my surprise, kinda mean. Good thing the boy doesn’t understand English… yet. My wife and I were just talking about starting to watch what we say. Well, what I say, since I’m usually the culprit. And it’s not just swearing, it all the inappropriate or nonsensical things, including my Mr. Potter impersonation from It’s a Wonderful Life.
* it’s sort of inspired by “As I Was Going To St. Ives” which I heard first on Sesame Street – here’s the video.
