Anyone who knows me knows I listen to WAY too much NPR. As in, it goes on when I wake up, goes off at dinner time. I have had these lovely visions of how well-informed and cultured Sidamo will grow to be with non-stop exposure to incisive news and witty commentary. Surely, even in his not-completely-verbal phase, he's absorbing something, right?
As a matter of fact he is absorbing something, but it isn't quite what I had in mind. See, every two minutes or so, someone from either NPR or our local member station is trying to direct people online for more information, pleading for us to "visit npr.org," or "learn more at kcfr.org." It never really registered to me just how frequently we hear this until I was driving the other day (listening to NPR of course) and heard a little voice in the back seat yelling, "O-R-G! O-R-G!" Which, coming from a not-yet-2-year-old, sounds an awful lot like, "ORGY! ORGY!"
Can't wait until he starts doing it in public. How highbrow will we look then?
