    Someone, please slap the baby-talk out of Sue.

    I’ve heard worse. At least it’s still intelligible. Some people go ’round the bend.

    It’s nice to see Sue has something nice to say about someone other than herself.

    I’d love it if Sue were able to hear Leela’s pithy remarks!

    @Comic Minister

    Probably not. Maria and Lila have a special “sisters” communication that does not extend to pesky schoolmates.

    . .I knew this dude in my neighborhood, right down the street from me. His dad would talk baby talk to him and his sister, even when they were in high school. They would talk baby talk back to their dad. It was like he didn’t want his kids to grow up. They stayed inside the house and studied hard. The dad didn’t want them socializing with the likes of us. They had top grades in school. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    . . .The other mothers roared with laughter about this. There was endless mirth how they were ruining these kids. The boy, especially would be good for nothing, it was solemnly declared by all. He would be a cripple. They talked roughly to their boys and put them to work in after-school jobs and sports. Studying was frowned on. Kids need rough experiences to toughen them up for the real world it was thought. . . .
    . . . . . .The boy who talked baby talk to his dad is now the CEO and president of a big bank. Furthermore, he hasn’t aged. He looks about 30 even though he’s close to 60.

    When the mud monster just started to talk, she was, of course, semi-intelligible. I decided to learn her language and let her pick up on mine at her convenience.

    Drove my wife nuts! I could talk to the kid, but she couldn’t….

    (NBD – her vocabulary was about 30 words.)

    Shortly afterwards, when she’d developed some ability in my language, she noticed that the dog didn’t talk. (She’d thought that he was a somewhat self-directed stuffed animal!) She asked me: “Will Spunky be able to talk when he gets bigger?” Couldn’t explain that the answer was no, and that he was about ten years old.

    (Very smart dog, though!)

    The kid thought that she was a dog, btw, until my sister’s four little ones turned up. They taught her to walk.
