2 Year Old Wisdom: Sarcasm Ben Levy 27, July

My daughter lives in my house, where she hears The Wife and I speak. So it’s no surprise that she’s already dabbling with sarcasm.

But here’s the thing. Sarcasm to a two year old is just lying obviously. So my daughter’s approach goes something like this- and please keep in mind she knows her letters:

The Daughter, holding up the letter Y: Look Daddy, A!

Then she smiles. Except that’s a bit of an understatement. The expression on her face is the reason they created the phrase “Shit-eating grin.” It was with just such a smile that the saber-toothed tigers of old surprised our ancestors in the field. If her smile were any wider, the top of her head would fall off.

Me: No honey, that’s a Y.

TD: No, Daddy. Ayyyyy! *Grin*

Me: Uh huh. If try to correct you, you’re going to keep calling it an A. And if I agree with you, then you’ll learn the wrong thing, never get into college, and wind up living at home for the rest of your life.


Me: This round goes to you.

Well done, whoever thought of this. And well done to whoever has enough faith in their brand to take the piss out of it this way.
