Emily needed a writing utensil. She went to her room and came out holding a "Penci" (pen-see) as she called it. Naturally, my mind went into action.
You see, Tyler and Emily bantered back and forth about the word "penci" not being a real word. As the father, who (as Bill Cosby once said) does not care about justice but wants QUIET, I broke the verbal battle up by offering my own take.
A "Penci" is, of course, a Christmas writing instrument! How do you know? Why, it has NO L, of course!!
Yes, feel free to "boo" here. Thanks.
