A general theme is developing around the Dude’s house, and it’s a theme developed by a five year old princess; “You Can Call Life Whatever You Want.”
The original discussion centered around the word “water.” The Princess pronounces water “wuter;” it could be a southern thing. The Dude asked her about this, and the Princess explained that water and wuter are the same thing. The Dude must have appeared perplexed because this was followed by “You can call life whatever you want.” And the overriding household theme began.
It seems like this phrase is referenced on a daily basis, like when freckles are referred to as nipples (as in “How did you get nipples on your hand?” or “You have a nipple on your face.”) or zucchini is referenced as bikini (As in “I don’t want any bikinis on my plate.”).
However, it has morphed into a justified reason for almost all of the nuances of life, like a tooth fairy debate: Princess proclaims, “The tooth fairy brings gold coins.” Dude responds, “I’m not so sure about that.” Princess follows with “That’s ok, you can call life whatever you want.”
