Evolving Dictionary

So a list of mis-pronounced words probably doesn't qualify as a dictionary, but I can't think of what else to call it and I'm too lazy to go poking around a thesaurus for a better word. Has anyone else ever thought that "thesaurus" sounds like a cousin of "tyrannosaurus"? No? OK, moving on.

I've wanted to make a little list of things Koji says that we understand perfectly though their delivery is a bit mangled. Unfortunately, these words are all Japanese words, so it doesn't make sense for me to introduce the list in English. Why should I make sense though? I'm the same one who confuses reference books with dinosaurs.

だいぶじゅ = 大丈夫
くさだい = 下さい
たまげに = 玉ねぎ
かっぴ = ヘリコプタ
こーき = 飛行機
エイ先生 = 先生
ヒモリ = ひろみ

これ以上にあると思うけど今思い出せません。だれか、このコウジの変わった言い方についての思い当たりがあれば是非知らせてください。早速このリストにのせます!

そういえば、コウジは最近食べる前のお祈りを一人でできるようになりました。こんなかんじです:
     イエス様、 ケン アヤ もらったこと  アメン

素敵なお祈りですよね!イエス様はきっと笑っていると思います!

Yes! the occupants certainly ARE interesting. Looking forward to continued adventures from "many rooms" even if I desperately need a translator RIGHT NOW! :-) love oxox

Cute prayer - but I'm wondering - what DID you serve for dinner! :) We're always reminding our kids too, "The food, the food, what about the food?"
