Sanite and Ronald.....

Years ago after the oldest two came home we went on a quick drive through to McDonald's. The kids had been home only a handful of months and Sanites language was referred to as "Sanitese" as it was a mixture of Haitian Creole and English...Hacrenglish? Anyway...very few people could understand her. As we did a quick drive through of McDonald's we noticed that alas..Ronald McDonald himself was there handing out meals through the drive thru...We pulled up and lo-and-behold..there he was. I look in the rear view mirror to see this utterly confused look on my 3 year olds face..(hello???some freak with bushy red hair and pasty white face is handing us food...)I said "That's Ronald McDonald!" Once again..insert confused look. "He is the one who makes your fries." The light bulb clicked on...she gave a HUGE *sigh* as she turned and said (and signed) with MUCH passion in her words..."WI WUFF WOOO" (translation from Sanitese is I LOVE YOU!)
