A conversation... of sorts

Scene: the kitchen. Mommy reenters the room.

M: Hi, honey. How's your snack going?

P: What are we saying?

M: Well, we're having a conversation, the two of us. That's when we say things to each other. Like, I asked you a question and you can answer it if you want to.


P: Aw-ton-muh-nus-sin-di-mit?

*Mommy stares at her blankly for several beats...

...then remembers that Daddy is a Monty Python fan, who's been coaching Pumpkin in some of his favorite quotes, and bursts out laughing.*

So, what's your guess for what "aw-ton-muh-nus-sin-di-mit?" is supposed to be?

Here's an extra clue for's she's sitting there laughing and saying, "Help, help! I'm being repressed!"

Ajd thought we were an autonomous collective, but really we're an anarcho-syndicalist commune and Pumpkin was just taking her turn acting as an executive officer for the week.
Personally, I think I would have paid good money to see her sitting there saying "Help, help, I'm being repressed."

And the win goes to Happy Veggie!

(But yeah, it is hilarious to hear her say "Help, help, I'm being repressed," especially since she's knows it's funny, so she's got a huge grin on her face and then starts to giggle.)
