where does she pick up these things?

I can hear five year-old Lola on the stairs softly singing, "Funky cold..., Funky cold.." I am dying for her to add "Medina." Where has this eighties speak come from?

In other Lola news, she has announced that "I have three Mama names" and that she may be referred to as "Lola", "Lisa", or "Cupcake." Her legal name, "Lucy", is viewed as a hateful slur akin to the n word. I shared this with eight year-old Iris, who said that the world would come to an end before she addressed her sister as "Lisa", but she would consider changing "Lucy" to "Luce-a", so satisfying close to "Losah" in Iris's mouth.

i'm guessing iris thinks herself more Lisa while Lola she probably views as more Bart.

I'd go with "Cupcake." There's probably a very limited time span in which she'll enjoy that nickname.

Gob help us is she learns about Hammertime. She'll walk around doing the splits and yelling "Cain't touch this!"

Does Iris realize it's also satisfyingly close to looo ser?

Oh, don't be dissing poor Stanley Burrell. I have a weak spot for MC Hammer. He lost his racehorses and his estate, poor thing. I hope all the current stars have better investment plans than poor MC Hammer did.

And I liked MC Hammer's music! Didn't know the other name, though. Wow!
