Does it count as active vocabulary when you use words whose meaning you don’t actually know? If so, Fluffy has a huge active vocabulary.
On showing a video to the babysitter:
Fluffy: When I enthralled James and the Giant Peach to her, she said maybe her James would like it because it’s the same name.
On preparing for Kindergarten next year:
Fluffy: When I go to that kind of school that has homework, you have to tell me the answers. Otherwise I won’t want to go to that unsolicited place. You have to tell me all the numbers, okay?
On her drawing:
Fluffy:…and this is the unicorn I found in the barn. But there’s one more attachment I need to make. (Scribbles furiously) I made a release system so I can walk her around like doggies that you put around their necks. I think it’s called a release system.
Me: You mean a leash?
Fluffy: Yeah, a leash.
(Not a malapropism, but delightful) On watching Barbie: The Nutcracker for the first time yesterday on a 2 hour car drive:
Fluffy: Her legs are much longer than mine! And much stretchier! If you had that dress and your hair like that, you would look so gorgeous. I can’t believe this show exists! Even when I was a baby, I thought there could never be a show like this. This is my favorite movie of my life. I just wish it was on every show. It’s like the best Nutcracker movie ever.
On Prince Phillip:
Fluffy: He can’t just whine in dungeons his whole life. He needs to escape.
