My wife just left to pick up our grandson Tai from day care. I was wondering about greeting him on his return with “Can Tai tie his shoes?”
Then my mind went into a whirlwind of word combinations.
Tai can tie his shoes, but Tai first has to shoo us away.
Tai can shoe a horse but not if he shoos it.
Tai can’t shoe a fly, but he can shoo a fly. If he can’t shoe a fly, then he can’t tie a shooed fly’s shoe.
Drat, I thought I had more silly combinations, but it was a tie remembering them before other parts of my brain shooed them away.
