True Story…

…a couple of weeks ago, the girls and I were in the car in a restaurant parking lot, waiting for Daddy to meet us for dinner. Both of my babies were in the back seat reading; PunkinPie was working on a book about Someone-or-Other’s Worst Birthday Ever and Beanie was flipping through a book about faeries. Anyway, Punkin’s book was about a girl who had to cancel her ninth birthday party because she’d come down with the chicken pox. Our conversation went something like this:

PP – Hey, Mommy?

Me – Yes?

PP – What’s a plog?

Me – I have no idea. Give it to me in a sentence?

PP – “I’m sorry, Jessie,” Denise said, “I have to cancel my party. I have the plog.”

Me – (slightly confused) Spell it, please?

PP – P-L-A-G-U-E

Me – OH!! Plague!

PP – (with the excitement of recognition) OH!! BRING OUT YOUR DEAD!!!!

Can you tell what kind of household *I* run that my not-quite-nine-year-old readily makes this reference??
