Using New Words

Katie and her friend Lindsey were riding in the car with me today. Katie had on some cute sandals and Lindsey said, "Your shoes are pretty, Katie! Where did you get them?"

Katie replied, "At the PX, on the clearance rack!"

Lindsey responded, "I think they're gaudy!"

"Gaudy?" said Katie. "What does that mean?"

"My mom says "gaudy" whenever she sees something that is really sparkly," said Lindsey with great delight.

It took about ten minutes before I could stop laughing long enough to let the girls know that calling something gaudy is not a compliment.
