The little grandson of our friends picks up stuff from television commercials.

If he is feeling poorly he says he has “pain and suffering” or “colds and miseries.”

When he hears weatherman Al Roker say, “Now here is what’s happening in your neck of the woods,” the little lad asks why that man is always talking about “necking in the woods.”

After scraping his knee he yelled, “Call Akim. Call Akim.”
