For a couple of years now, whenever someone new is going to be around Connor a lot, I tell them "if you don't understand something he says, put an 's' in front of it". And when I say this, a wave of understanding will wash over their faces, and all of sudden they understand about the 'nakes.
Today, Connor announced to Ed that he had a snake on his shirt. Not a 'nake, a snake. It was so shocking that Ed asked Connor to tell me what was on his shirt, and sure enough, it was a snake.
I'm so bummed to see this speech tic disappear. I miss the 'nakes already.
