Frenchie has taken to pointing out rhetorical figures to the lads when he's reading them stories (can't keep an old English major down!). Last night, their novel included examples of a chiasmus and a synecdoche, so he explained those. Chico (still not quite 4) thought it would be fun to combine the two, pondered a moment, and came up with "Daddy's a good soul, a good soul is Daddy," which I thought was a pretty creditable attempt for his age! (Not to mention very apt personality analysis!)
