A New Kind of Language

Yesterday, as I was doing the dishes, my son came up to me and started making funny sounds:  "Vrooom, brrrrrm,brmmm, vroommmmmmm!"

I stopped what I was doing and looked at him. "Bubba, I can't understand a word you're saying."

"Brrmmmmmm, Barooooommmm, Vroooommmmm!"

I shook my head. "Dude, if you want to have a conversation with me, you need to speak a coherent language."

"But, Mama, I am speaking a language. It's motorcycle!"

Oh. Of course.

  7. A motorcycle, of course! At first, I thought his noise was mimicking a vacuum cleaner.

  13. I think maybe every little boy in the world had to make strange sounds at one point. Motorcycle sounds are some of the best. I used to do all sorts of weird sounds when I was little.

  14. I imagine you have to be fluent in every possible language with Bubba. Even then, you might've left motorcycle out! :)

  15. But of course, Mama, don't you know what a motorcycle engine sounds like? LOL Too cute. :-)

  16. Nice one! Maybe you should learn to speak his language instead, Sherry. ^_^

    1. At least morse code is learnable. I don't know about motorcycle. :)

  22. Having had cats in the past I speak feline quite fluently. As for motorcycle ... not on our school curriculum I feel I may now be too old.

  23. It would be helpful if he picked up the language of some household appliances -- ask the dishwasher why it's leaving soap on the dishes or ask the dryer where the missing sock went.
