Mikey's posted a few pictures of Mercy on her blog. When Mercy is giving her an ornery look, she refers to it as 'getting the stink eye'. Makes me laugh.
So I'm working at the store, and a woman pushes her cart up, stacked high with feed. A little girl maybe three years old is sitting on top of the feed, and if ever was a body giving the stink eye to the world, it was this one. I laughed a little at the expression on her face, and her mother shook her head, explaining that the child had just woken up.
As I was scanning the prices, the girl sat there planted in the middle of the feed. Noticing that one of the bags was dog food, I said, "Do you have a doggie at your house?" She smiled a little at that. "Yes," she said. Encouraged, I said, "So what's your doggie's name?"
She looked at me with her bright blue little eyes, and she said, "His name is Remington. But sometimes we call him Darn-it."
I just about fell over.
