My daughter is obsessed with two words these days – saliver (saliva) and disgusting…
Every time we go out to eat, a version of the following conversation takes place…
Daughter: “Maa, please don’t drink from my glass…It is DISGUSTING!!!! Your saliver is all over my glass…”
Me: “But, I didn’t use your straw and anyway, you can’t finish the drink…BTW, it’s not ‘saliver’ but ‘saliva’…”
Daughter: Whatever…It’s still DISGUSTING!!!
Daughter is blowing a balloon in the playground…A friend comes up and asks if she can try…Daughter says, “My mother told me not to mix salivers…It’s disgusting…”
Daughter: “Maa, there’s a lizard on the wall…It’s tail is moving…It’s so DISGUSTING!!!
“Paloma told me that when people get married, they kiss on the lips…YUCK!!! The saliver mixing…DISGUSTING!!! I’ll never get married!“
