Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

I can’t take my eyes off this ad, quite possibly because I imagine it as a depiction of my future (well, perhaps without the car). My little Girlie can’t even speak yet, but already looks intently into my eyes, furrows her brow, and delivers the most earnest speeches composed of random sequences of ‘m’, ‘n’, ‘a’, ‘b’, ‘s’, ‘p’, ‘z’, ‘e’ and ‘l’ sounds, blissfully unaware of any grammar, syntax, or vocabulary. It is absolutely delightful, and I cannot wait to find out what in the world she’s talking about.

    (Glad you have a talker. The creative gibberish phase is almost as charming as walking. Video, please! :-)

    I love that ad, too. That is absolutely Lizzy to the core. We can’t get a word in edgewise.
