Ever since Shakira lit up the stage at the World Cup opening ceremonies recently, strains of her songs have been wafting around this home (yours truly being the culprit, for the most part). Katya has inherited the genes of observation from her mother, while Baab has inherited the genes of (non) observation from me, as was dramatized by this episode of what I call a local version of Jaywalking!
Porcupyn (hums): Oh Baby when you dance like that …
Katya: … you make a woman go mad.
Porcupyn and Mrs. Porcupyn laugh out loudly.
Baab (out of earshot until that point): What was funny? What was SO funny?
Porcupyn: I was humming something and Katya completed it for me.
Baab: What was it?
Porcupyn: Oh Baby when you dance like that …
Baab: You make your mother go mad!!!
