‘Don’t be such a grizzle-bucket!’ I lamented to my daughter.

‘Grizzle-bucket??’ queried my friend.

‘I do beg your pardon. That is family-speak for “a grumpy child”,’ I translated. ‘You know how eskimos have dozens of words for snow, on account of their extensive and varied experience of frozen water? And so it is with me and grumpy children.’

Thank you – you made wifey’s day! 🙂
I am making notes regarding interaction with children, grumpy and otherwise, and quaking.
