Nate has recently upped his thoughtfulness in the gift department. After last month’s anniversary gift (Garner’s Modern American Usage) and this week’s birthday gift (the above guinea hen that I have been pining over in the town trade shop window for the past six months), it is GAME ON at Christmas.
When the kids saw the guinea hen at separate moments on my birthday–it was hanging out on the mantel–they both said independently of hearing the other, “QUACK!” It cracked me up because it doesn’t remotely resemble a duck to me. When I told them such, they of course wanted to know what a guinea hen says.
…And then I finally showed them this video, which left them no less confused, but they were at least able to come up with creative sounds for the guinea hen. My vote is “wow pow pow pow pow pa pow!”
