My three-year-old made me soup. I started eating it and she yelled at me to stop. It was too hot. I said okay and pushed it to the side. She yelled, "Don't touch the bowl!" Okay. When she told me it was cooled off, I took a bite and announced that it was very alphabetty. "And cuppy," she said. "Yes, and cuppy," I replied, stirring my soup. And then I found the secret ingredient: mermaid.
