Misunderstandings this early in the morning

So the SA vs Kiwi accent thing has caused a few misunderstandings over the last 3 years but none as funny as the one this morning.

I was driving the kids to daycare when the Diva pipes up from the back seat “Mum, DestructaBoy has a normal willy and I have a different willy”.

I was thinking, wow, its a bit early in the morning for these conversations. I haven’t even had a cup of tea yet and we’re leaping into the birds and the bees.

So I say “no Diva, you don’t have a willy, you have a vagina”.

Well… this indignant yell comes back at me “NO MUM!!!! It’s a HAT, just a HAT!”. She meant “woolly”, not “willy”, and yes indeed, DestructaBoy had a normal woolly hat on and she had a rather odd woolly hat on.


Some mornings you just cant win!
