This morning while I was having a conversation, what about doesn’t matter because it was a boring conversation about an irrelevant topic, what is important is that I used the word ‘antiquated’.
I was bent over Devlin, fighting with him to get his arms pulled through his sweater, chatting away about boring crap and I happened to say the “blah blah blah is antiquated” and suddenly grumpy little Devlin’s face just lights up with a huge grin.
I look at him in puzzlement, “Are you laughing at me?“. He smiles.
“Was it the word antiquated?” He laughs.
“Antiquated?” He laughs.
“Sean, you have to see this. He laughs when I say antiquated.”
Dev’s older brother grimaces, frustrated because I’m always telling him to look at what Dev is doing now. “I’m not getting up.”
So I spun Dev’s chair so Sean can see his little brothers face.
“Watch this… Antiquated” Dev turns his face and frowns.
I try again, saying the word that sounds weirder with every time I say it..
“Antiquated” and again Dev turns his head and frowns.
I turn Dev away and back to the TV and say “Guess you’re over the word antiquated” and he lit up and giggled again.
