NEW WORD WEDNESDAY-A Celestial Revelation!

Our sweet little Ria
had the most whispery little voice 
when she was small.
It was always fun to listen to that little 
voice.
One day we were sitting out back
by the bay
and a plane went overhead.
She looked up and said
Look- I'ts s 
SKYSCRATCH!

What?
A SKYSCRATCH!

That airplane up there 
scratched the sky.
It's a SKYSCRATCH!
And here, all this time,
 you thought it was a 
JET TRAIL  or CONTRAIL
caused by hot air 
mixed with atmospheric conditions.
YOU were/are WRONG. 
All that blue actually has 
white scratches on it.

Your challenge THIS WEEK is to say
SKYSCRATCH
ten times in a row.
It is a REAL tongue twister!
Try it!!!  It is harder than you think!
You just tried it, didn't you?
snicker

Have a great day!

  6. I did! and it is a tongue twister! She has grown and turned into a tiny, elegant dancer! I will always think of her now when I see the skyscratch!

  7. What a smart kiddo! I remember when one of my kids called it a contrail for the first time. I had never even heard of the word and I was pretty impressed (not to mention feeling pretty stupid:). And nope, can't say it.

  9. Yes! I tried it. And I succeeded. And - I like that word. How do you submit it to a dictionary? I think those lines behind the planes should be called skyscratches. It sounds about right to me!

  10. I have often wondered if those "skyscratches" actually control our weather. You see so many of them, zig zagging across the skies. Oh well, that is just me. I like that word and yesssss I tried saying "skyscratcher" 10+ times. I think by the 10th time I wondered if I even was saying "sky" right...hahahaha!!

  14. Adorable! It makes sense! XOX P.S. I can't say it 10 times!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I like her description best! LOL and yes, I can say it 10 times ;-) Of course, I normally talk a mile a minute (according to my sweet hubby) so it was fairly easy.

  20. Out of the mouths of babes!

    Do you remember Art Linkletter's Kids Say the Darndest Things?

  21. I tried it! You know me so well. ;) I only got to number three though...it's a tough one!

  22. A little offtopic, but I've met a few people who believe in the conspiracy theory known as chem trails. One guy told me the "elite" are trying to "thin the herds" and they'll be safe because they drink special water and healthy foods.

    I wanted to make him a tin foil hat.

  23. That actually makes perfect sense. Smart girl!

    ReplyDelete
  27. It was hard for me to say it once. I love the things kids say!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Now every time I see the vapor trails from the planes I will think of the word "sky scratch"...out of the mouth of babes....Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  29. hahahaha! Oh the sweet innocence of kids! I tried saying it, but I couldn't make it to 10x!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I remember my son when little pointed to the sky and said, "Look mommy, you can see the airplanes fart!" I laughed and told him it was a contrail. He looked at me quizzically and said, "Mom, that's a plane so it would be a plane trail."

  31. How darling, kids do say the darnedest things. Have an amazing week. Jo

  35. That Ria is such a cutie. I thought it was her smile, but maybe it's the eyes too. All I know is that she has the sweetest look. And what a fun word for today. I can see why she called it a skyscratch hehehe.

    love, ~Sheri

  36. Adorable as usual - put it in your dictionary you are making.

    I'll say that if you say - "Molasses on the table" - holding you tongue!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I tried to do the tongue twister and when thighscratch came out, I stopped... heehee! Too funny Diana, I will never look at those chem, ahem... jet trails again without thinking about the sky being scratched, lol... Always enjoy your new word Wednesday :)

  38. I never thought about the new word, but it definitely would work. Of course, you never know what kids will say for sure. They are just growing up entirely to fast. We want to keep them little as long as possible. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend shirley

  39. There is laughter in her eye's! What a precious little girl. That's a really cute word Diana - love it.

  40. How cute! I think skyscratch sounds better than contrails. Yep, I tried it 10 times and nearly made it, but it finally came out "sky catch". lol!
