On the way home from school today Jack asked me, "Mom, what is your favorite palindrome?"
I paused. And reached into the dark recesses of my mind
trying to locate the definition of a palindrome.
I got nothing.
"Remind me what a palindrome is, buddy."
"A palindrome is the a word that spells the same thing
both forward and backward."
I reached back into that spacious abyss of my memory trying to
think of a favorite word that spells the same thing both
forward and backward.
"I don't think I have a favorite...what's yours?"
"I like Professor Ross E.Forp."
"Nice, that is a good one!"
"Addie and Will's favorites are "poop" and "toot".
Of course they are.
Why wouldn't they be?
This brought giggles from the other boys.
Then Addie piped up, "I also like "bob".
Well, thank God for "bob" is all I can say.
