S-p-e-l-l it out

We're at the stage where B.Rube and I can spell out words in a sentence and still not have the girls know what we're talking about.

Our conversation just now:
(you might wonder why we have to spell out the word shower... sometimes, just once in a while, it is nice to be able to take a quick shower without making it an entire family affair. We have to sneak off in order to do that. Otherwise it becomes a half-day event.)

J.Rube: Oh, did you just have a s-h-o-w-e-r?
B.Rube: No, I just had a s-h-i-t.

Pete & I do the same thing, only Pete's sweet brain just can't compute spelling quickly. If I spell "b-r-o-w-n-i-e", it takes him about five minutes and three respellings before it clicks. Poor us. Not so simple to keep things on the D.L.

I used to say I was going for a BM and lock the door so I could sneak off and read for awhile. (Yes...I put the lid down and sat there to read) But they figured out that they could use a quarter to unlock the door- SHIT!!
