This morning I corrected Ashton in his pronunciation of "library." He was saying, "liberry," as I'm sure many of you have heard come out the mouths of small children. Well, he's 6 now and his mom works in a library so I figured it was time for him to start saying it correctly. After he repeated "library" several times, he came up with this analyzation of the word: "Mom, saying that makes my mouth taste like bananas."
"It makes your mouth taste like bananas?" "No, just underneath my tongue." Well, okay then. That's an interesting thought- what if all words had a taste associated with it when we said it? And not necessarily the food we might be saying (such as chocolate- although that would make me a very happy girl! All the flavor without the calories?!?!); perhaps the sound would have some influence over the taste. How's this for an example: Computer might taste like popcorn- the hard sound of the c, p and t might be like crunching on popcorn. Am I a dork or what? Do you have any good word taste/sound ideas?
Another random thought: having tons of homework is a great way to get the house clean.
