I have a very not happy 7-year-old this morning. I asked her to help with something. She was not thrilled. Did not know I was still standing right there and began mumbling under her breath. I don't know what was said but it was not pretty! Could tell by the inflection and facial expression.
"Wow. I'm guessing that wasn't very nice."
"What? I just said ... viva."
"I SAID VIVA!"
"Um, that's not even a word."
"Yes it IS! VIVA LAS VEGAS! That's what I said!!"
At which point I left as quickly as I could before she saw me laughing.
When it becomes the hot, new curse word, remember who gets credit.
