Kid: Mommy, what does BELLI-TERGENT mean?
Me: Where did you hear that?
Kid: In school today.
Me: I’ve never heard of that word. Are you sure that’s the right word?
Kid: Yes, it’s spelled B-E-L-L-I-G…
Me: BELLIGERENT? It’s pronounced BELLIGERENT.
Me: (mental forehead smack)
After I tell Grandmama the story above…
Grandmama: Oh my goodness! Kid, you act so blond sometimes.
Kid: I’m not blond! I can see!
Me: (real forehead smack)
