The other day, my son looks up from his book and declares that he has ‘extra meats’?
“What are you talking about?”
“I have extra meats. I have fingers and toes.”
Looking over his shoulder, I realize what word he’s trying to pronounce. “Almost kiddo, but that word is ‘extremities.'”
Though ‘extra meats’ is also a pretty plausible definition for fingers and toes — it must be the Latin origin of the word. My kid’s a genius.
