How do you spell relief?

Our new to nine daughter was conversing with her mother when the topic turned to dinner. (This was last night, by the way.)

MOTHER: “Would you like something to eat for dinner Beth?”
BETH: “No thanks.”
MOTHER: “Are you sure? Not even a little something from the freezer?”
BETH: “No, no thanks. If I eat anything else I’ll feel bloated.”
FATHER (laughing): “Hold on Beth, do you even know what ‘bloated’ means?”
BETH (snooty): “DAUH!?! It’s when your belly gets so full it starts to stick out and you feel uncomfortable because your pants don’t fit anymore.”

See there… who says television can’t be educational – even retail advertising.

Give the gift of words.
