Hmph!



Apparently, the above is an artist's rendering of a famous cartoon character named Hmph. Who knew.

Sadie, like I said, is mad at me most of the time, and when she's mad, she invariably says, "Hmph!"

I think that's so funny. I've read a lot of books in my day, and in the books where a character would say, "Hmph!" I would chuckle to myself and say, "Who says that? Hmph? I've never heard anyone say that in real life." I thought it was the same as "Er..." I don't know one person who, when he is at a loss for words, or can't think straight, says, "Er..." He says, "Um..." Or "Uh..." Not "Er..."

But "Hmph!" comes out very clearly from my little speech-impedimented girl whenever she is mad. Which is about fifty thousand times per day.

I love it! Hmph! And, I totally agree with you that nobody says, "Er..."!

I've never heard her say that! I'll have to listen for it.

Is it weird that I now say "Er" in my head like all the time. I think its from all the reading I've done...got it stuck there like it was something normal...but I totally don't say it out loud. So, how's your story coming along? Don't let B/Pete get to you...he can get annoying when he is trying to "motivate" you ;).
