J: OK, Mom! We promise we will behave like young ladies instead of like...
Me: Scalawags?!? Where did you learn that word?
M: I don't remember...does it mean the same thing as hooligans?
Me: Yeah, pretty much the same thing. :)
There was silence for a few moments while they thought that over, and then Anya piped up:
"Mommy, I promise I won't behave like a hoola-hoop, too."
