While singing “there was an old lady who swallowed a fly:”

Me: “There was an old lady who swallowed a spider. It wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her–”

Billie: “Oooh! How about: ‘There was an old lady who swallowed a dinosaur. it made her vagina sore to swallow that dinosaur-‘”

Me: “BILLIE.”

Billie: “What? Did I say something wrong?”

Me: “Well, technically that’s a slant rhyme. But it’s imaginative and probably physically accurate so I’ll allow it.”
