Pikachu

What’s up with Pikachu?  What is UP with Pikachu?!  He’s that cute little pink-cheeked Pokémon and all he ever says is, “Pee-cuh.  Peee-cuh.  Chew!  Peee-cuh-chew!”

Uh.  Ok.  Is that why they named him Pikachu?  Which came first: the Pikachu, or the peee-cuh-chew?!

Seriously.  It’s so annoying.  He’s gotta move on to something else.

Why am I even on this topic?  Because I was privy to a huge dose of peee-cuh-chew this past Saturday.  At full blast.

He sounds like a baby just learning to make complex sounds-which-aren’t-quite-words.

When my daughter was doing that, she sounded mostly Asian and once-in-a-while Latvian.  When my son was doing it, he sounded like a bubble machine and there was a LOT of spit.

Pikachu?  Just sounds annoying.

But Pikachu is not the first of his kind.  Remember that cartoon from the 80’s?  (Hey!  I’m flexible.  I can talk 80’s cartoons OR songs.  Today it’s cartoons.)  It was called Thundercats.  (Thundercats, HO!!!)  There were human-ified lions and tigers in that show.  They talked like people.  But they had spotted/striped hair and weird cat eyes.  And of course, cat powers.  They also had a pet…cat.  How wacky is that?!?  But all the cat ever said was, “Snarf.  Snarf.”  So his name was Snarf.

This cartoon-y named-after-the-sound-you-make theme I’ve identified makes me wonder if I’m STILL a stay at home mom because I SOUND like a stay at home mom?!?

Hmmm…what does a stay at home mom sound like?

I CAN’T STAND DOING ANYMORE DISHES.  I’M NOT DOING ANOTHER DISH.  IF YOU MAKE THAT DISH DIRTY, YOU CLEAN THAT DISH!!!

That’s just ONE example.  I could give you various OTHER examples – all shout-y like – pertaining to carpools, errands, meals, homework, school projects, holiday preparation and so forth.  But I won’t go into that now.  Because I think I’ve narrowed it down.  You know what makes me sound MOST like a stay at home mom?!?  The part where I say, “Nope.  Still no job.  But thanks for bringing it up!”  [stink eye, stink eye]
