Here's some of tonight's commentary from Alice (3):
Al: Mom, can I taste your tea?
Al: Mmm. It tastes like gum--like CHEWED gum.
Al: Do YOU think it tastes like chewed gum?
me: I don't know. I've never tasted chewed gum.
Al: Hm. It tastes like chewed gum.
She sort of has a point, but how does she know the taste of chewed gum?
(btw: she looked exactly like Jenni Mella--including facial expressions and shoulder shrugs--as we had this conversation. Amazing!)
