You're seeing what?

Last night we took the children to see Horton Hears a Who at the bargain theatre across town. Cute movie, and definitely worth the trip to the bargain theatre.

Sass has the worst time remembering the name of that particular movie though. I've no idea why. She loves Dr Seuss, and we've read the Horton books. But some reason, she just can't get the name of that one quite right.

So yesterday when we were at the store, Sass had a conversation with a lady about our planned movie outing. (Yes, my children strike up conversations with random strangers; it's just what they do.) The conversation started as usual --

"We're going to see a movie tonight!"

"That sounds nice. What movie?"

Then, divergence.

"We're seeing "H.oo.ter Hears a Honk."

(Nice lady does double take, looks at me.) "You're seeing what?"

Oh too cute! Good thing I wasn't drinking my coffee when I read her version of the movie title because I laughed out loud and I'd be cleaning coffee off the keyboard. Thanks for the laugh!

Hooter hears a honk. That is fabulous.

How funny....but it sounds like that movie may not be appropriate for children. HA!!!
