Derv, He Said



“Would you like a mini-pizza hors d’oeuvres?” is what I said.  “Would you like a mini-pizza or derv?”  is what he heard. Temerarious seven year-old that he is, he boldly chose “derv”.

    I would like to know what he thinks a “derv” is…this is the only definition I can find “Diesel fuel intended for use in road vehicles and taxed accordingly. British English. Pronounced “durv” to rhyme with curve. Originally an acronym for Diesel Engined Road Vehicle. ” 🙂

  2. me too! how could he opt to eat something he’d never heard of? would that ever occur to you? I know it wouldn’t to me — but fitting that he’s choosing a petroleum product and his father works for big oil…
