I remember me as a little girl always ask my Dad to read and play with me. I would say, "Do Dad."

When the mind cannot extract the correct word then one is compelled to resort to nonsense as a form of communication. And the funny thing is that the listeners almost always understand exactly what I'm trying to spit out.

Christine's Dictionary of Words and Phrases - it's the um, uh, the uh, the thing...you know, the thing that's connected to the other thing. Yeah that thing. It just went clank clank and that was it.

So I guess I need a new one.
A new what, sir?
A new thing. Didn't I just tell you?
