I think Dill often says very eloquent things when he speaks (especially for an 11 year old). For instance, tonight as we were driving, he was talking about some candy he still had left over from Christmas. He said, “No one can really capture the essence of the banana flavor in candy" This phrase tickled me and I made a point to remember it.
However this morning I was less than amused when, as I was picking up Pepper and my breakfast dishes from the table he said to me, “Be a dear and take away my dishes too” That earned him dish washing duty! J
