And ye shall teach [these words to] your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
Yes, I too was born among men. I had never seen the jungle. They fed me behind bars from an iron pan till one night I felt that I was Bagheera, the Panther, and no man's plaything, and I broke the silly lock with one blow of my paw, and came away; and because I had learned the ways of men, I became more terrible in the jungle than Shere Khan. Is it not so? --Bagheera, in Mowgli's BrothersAnd yeah, the animals all talk in Elizabethan English. Which is awesome on so many levels. I'm reticent to promise a real-deal book report, but don't be shocked if you hear more talk of Kipling's jungle in the future.
Not sure what to tell this week about Jack-san. He's got a two-week long streak going for sitting through the entirety of church. I mean, his stay is punctuated with "UH OH!" and "NO!" providing some pretty good laughs for those around us, but it's tolerable.
His latest funny talent is being able to participate in reading books and praying. So for Goodnight, Moon, he'll finish out the lines for you, like so:
"Goodnight comb, Goodnight [BUH!], Goodnight nobody, Goodnight [MUH!], And goodnight to the old lady whispering, '[SHHHHHHHHHHHH!]'"
That last part has him mashing his nose down completely flat with his index finger.
He even prays pretty well:
"Dear [GAH], Thank you for [DADA] and thank you for [MAMA] and thank you for [BUH!] and thank you for [PAPA] and thank you for [BUH!] and thank you for [MMM], right, for Grammy, and thank you for [DADA] and thank you for Granddaddy, and thank you for [BAHBAH], that's right, Beebee, and thank you for [MAMA] and thank you for [BUH!] and I love and thank you for Jesus [ZHUHZHS], and I pray in His name, [AMUH!]"
Amuh. I think that's the Aramaic.
