“Today is a taffy on a string type day” my daughter-in-law announced from the living room.
I was in my granddaughter's room getting her ready for her doctor's appointment- her 12-month check-up. My brain starts processing the words. Taffy on a string. What does that mean? Is it a New England phrase? Does it mean you are trying to make progress but keep getting stuck? Is there something about the day that is elusive?
As I was about to ask her what a "taffy on a string type day" means, she says “Don’t you think bringing her paci is a good idea?”
Oh, now it begins to make sense. Paci on a string. Her pacifier. Bring her pacifier in anticipation, so she can soothe herself when she gets her shot. Yes, it is a pacy on a string type day.
