Spidermonkey Humor

My 7 year old daughter, codename Spidermonkey, was suspended high off the ground within the doorway of her room (hence, her nickname).
As I was trying to pass through her doorway, which she was effectively blocking, I pleasantly asked, "Annin, could I have by, please?"
In her cheerful way, she answered, "Sure, but first, what is the magic word?"
At that, I said, "Please," (of course--what other magic word is there.)

To which she promptly said, "No. The magic word tonight is 'lotion.'" Then she cackled (a trait that lets me know she's my daughter) and hopped down, freeing the passage.
And some people question the value of a homeschooling education!
