Only Bug!


We were on our way to Logan this afternoon, when Lyra asked me, "Mom, what's that hangy down thing in your throat?" I, being the all-knowing mom, replied "It's called your uvula." "Oh," was her response. A few more minutes passed and she asks, "Mom, where are my utahnsils?" After a few giggles (I stifled MOST of mine!), we decided that tonsils give you a sore throat, but UTAHNSILS make you a Utahn!

How funny. I think the fascination with uvulas must come with that age. Jaxon had to tell everyone in his kindergarten class that if they touched it with their fingers, they would throw up. Of course, a few of the boys HAD to try it out... eeeeewwww.

So since I was born in Idaho do I have idahonsils or utahnsils? Only Lyra would come up with this. You are so funny girl. I love you!!

I think they are the tings in the back of our throat that keeps us Utahns from pronouncing our t's in the middle of town names like Trenton, Newton, Tremonton. What do you think?
