Scat


Yesterday…

The Pep: “Mom, what does scat mean?”

Me: “It means to go away.  You know like if a cat is bothering you, you tell it to scat.”

The Pep: “Oh, like when someone is bugging you and you throw them out of your house or like when you use your foot and kick someone out of a restaurant??!!”

Me: “Perhaps I didn’t explain that correctly. (yikes!) 🙂 Allow me to clarify.”

Me: “Ok, I’m just going to read you the first definition. (read def. allowed)”

Me: “That’s right!” (*Phew* glad we didn’t have to go over that third definition.)
