Level of tiredness: Arguing grammar and linguistics with a 4-year-old.
Destroy: I throwed my transformer down the stairs.
Me: You THREW your toy. And donâ€™t do that.
Destroy: No, I throwed my transformer, not my toy.
Me: Ok. But you already threw it. Which means you did it already. The past tense of â€œthrowâ€ is â€œthrew.â€ And donâ€™t do that.
Destroy: And then you catched it.
Me: I CAUGHT it.
Destroy: Because it was already catched?
Me: Kind of. â€œCaughtâ€ is the past tense of â€œcatch.â€
Destroy: No. You catched it because it didnâ€™t broked.
Me: It didnâ€™t BREAK. But donâ€™t throw your toys.
Destroy: Youâ€™re doing it wrong Luke Skywalker! <uproarious laughter>
And then I spilled my coffee down my shirt. Iâ€™m gonna need more.
