The Things They Learn At School
The other evening Jeff and I were having a rather serious conversation with Amelia.
At the end I said, "Got it?"
The usual response to that in our house is, "Got it!"
But Amelia looked up at both of us and said, "Capice."
Jeff and I looked at each other and burst out laughing.
After a round of "Did you teach her that? I didn't teach her that," Amelia piped up. "You know 'capice.' It means "Got it."
Thanks, child. We know that. We want to know where you learned it!
So I asked her, wondering if I should pay more attention to the occasional kids' show she watches.
"I learned it at school," she said matter-of-factly.
Well OK. Apparently we were unaware of the heavy Italian influence at her school. Maybe she'll also learn to make a decent lasagne.
