Schools are closed today (teacher work day), so I had my kids with me today at the store.  Some guy came up and accused my kids of playing hooky.  ::)  Even if they were actually truant, it's none of his business.  I could even be homeschooling them.

The French have the expressision parole d'escalier -- words of the staircase -- meaning the witty retort that you think of as your leaving.  It's frustrating, isn't it?

Yes it is frustrating! At least I know I am not the only one who does this.

At least now I have an elegant phrase to describe what my kids call "Muhmering." It's me mouthing comebacks I thought of too late to actually use.
