Can I Have Some Scotch, Mom?


The first few times I heard this request from my kids, it really jarred me, but I don't flinch anymore. It's just how French people refer to good old 3M Scotch tape. They rarely say tape here, which would be adhésif. It's kind of like how we use the word Xerox, when we mean copy...

So, my eight- and ten-year-old aren't hitting the hard stuff.

Though these packets do disappear reguarly without explanation...
