Don’t you love little kidisms? You know, those adorable little words and phrases that don’t have any proper place in the English language but they are too cute to correct?
One of my new favorites:
v. Versed, versing, verse
1. To occupy oneself in amusement, sport, or other recreation
2. To take part in a game
It took me a moment to comprehend it. We had a soccer game this morning and Sophie was talking to her bestie. Her bestie said “why are we versing this team again, we versed them last week”?
Last week the other team actually schooled them on the game of soccer, we lost – a lot to nothing.
It turns out that the practice that occurred on Wednesday, otherwise known as the most chaotic two hours of my life, was worth attending. It also turns out that it was a good thing we got to verse this team again because this time the little grammar butchers prevailed!
