As I have mentioned in one of my older posts, my older son and I have stumbled onto the age old Drazi argument.  What's amusing (to me if no one else) is that randomly, sometimes with weeks, or months in between, he and I will break into this same "argument".  In every instance, he sticks by Green, and I stick by Purple.   It's a bit unlike the real Drazi in that way, I suppose, because it's not randomly sides, but always me versus my son, and I always pick purple and he always green.

What's new to this mix, you might wonder?

Ah, well, that would be son #2.  He of eighteen months age, has started expanding his vocabulary.   What word has he recently added to his small and growing repetoire?  Why PURPLE, that's what.   Oh, my older son, he cleverly tries to get him to say green.  But my younger boy, he knows which side of this argument he is on, because he refuses to speak that foul word.  Indeed, I've even managed to get him to say purple now, in response to the prompt of green.  Ha!  (Okay, only once, but it's a start.)

Heard in the Greaves household just the other night:

Me: No
Litlle Man: Yes
Me: No
Litlle Man: Yes
Me: No
Litlle Man: Yes
Me: Purple (A subtle attempt on my part to break out of an endless loop.)
Little Man: (without missing a beat)  Green!
Me: Purple!
Little Man: Green!
Me: Purple!
Little Man: Green!
Me: Purple!
Little Man: Green!
(And it goes on from there....)

I had no idea that my son and I were apparently part Drazi, nor that we were from different factions.   My wife, playing the role of Ivanova, stopped the fighting by announcing that dinner was ready.
