Use Your Grumpy Voice

(Max on his first day of Junior Kindergarten)

Max comes in to the computer room during his dinner tonight, looks at me and out of nowhere says,


He sounded like a demon; his voice all low, whispery and growly.

Wow, I say, that sounds great Max (he had French lessons at school today).

JEM pipes up and says, "that's great Max. I can't even say it like that."

Max looks him up and down and explains, "Um dad, you just have to use your grumpy voice."

That's what I've been missing all these years trying to perfect my French accent - my grumpy voice.
