Improper Use

Evan and Seth discovered air quotes.  

They use them all the time now.

Almost always incorrectly.

Mom, I want "strawberries" for snack.

Can we go to the "pool"?

I love "cookies".

I'm going to be the "oldest" person in my class.

Do I have to take a "nap"? I'm not really "tired".  

Considering they don't understand sarcasm the last one is especially ironic.

How funny is it that the day after reading this, Bella comes up to me and says Mom can I "please" (finger quote!) have some "milk"?
haha thought of you!
