09:03 am - Whistle why you work...
I thought I had posted this as part of the holiday wrap-up, but apparently I've just been telling people about it in individually.

My father is always losing things. He's legendary for it. He's very focused on whatever he's doing and that makes him absent-minded about whatever he's not doing. (Actually, I'm the same way. It's embarrassing, but I have a magical super-power to compensate - my father does not.)

So my mother bought him a keychain to put on his key ring that responds when you whistle. Two problems:
1. My mom got him one of those last years.
2. My father can't whistle, probably as a result of losing some teeth as a boy.

But that's okay, because Dad likes this one better than that one, which, by the way, is the only thing in the house can find. He produces the old one in less than 20 seconds - and not by whistling for it.

Hoppie is able to set it off by whistling for it, though. So the next day, we're in the car shopping with Rosie and everytime my mother says something, the thing goes off. There's something in her tone of voice that is at the frequency preferred by receiver.
"Bih ill!" she says.
DEE DEE DEE DEE DEE. DEE DEE DEE DEE DEE!
Everytime it goes off, I giggle.
"Is that thing going to go off all night!"
DEE DEE DEE DEE DEE! DEE DEE DEE DEE DEE!
*giggle giggle*
Bih ill!!!
DEE DEE DEE DEE DEE! DEE DEE DEE DEE DEE!
*giggle giggle*

Dad: *fweet* (trying to whistle)

(*chirp chirp*)
Finally dad gets fed up and says, "What do I have to do to activate this thing. Imitate Judy? (falsetto) Bih ill!"
DEE DEE DEE DEE DEE! DEE DEE DEE DEE DEE!
