As I haven’t been feeling well, it was a much more subdued, reserved visit with Erica this week. Particularly after she had me spin her around that one time and I got overwhelmingly dizzy… no, mostly we played some of her favourite video games on the computer, like the one featuring the Care Bears.
But I did learn two things — firstly, Erica simply loves the digital camera I bought her for Christmas. She takes it with her on trips to her grandparents house, and loves to take pictures of everything, including but not limited to close-ups of her cat’s fur, and whatever she happens to be watching on TV.
Secondly, it seems that a number of people — on separate, individual occasions — have commented on the fact that Erica seems at times to say certain words with an accent. Now, if you’ve read this site for any real length of time, you already know the same thing happens to me all the time, people just randomly guess I’m Australian or something. How unlikely that she and I would both have this affliction!
In her case, the theory is that she must be watching the Harry Potter or Chronicles Of Narnia films a little too much, and picking up a few words from it. But dude… I was oddly happy to learn this today.
