The little people in the house claim to be accident-prone today. This morning they were "accidentally" watching TV. This afternoon the larger one bit the smaller one "By accident!" Huh?

Well, at least the littler one has finally learned to say "By accident" instead of "On accident". Now we just have to work on the definition of 'accidental'!

I may 'accidentally' have the TV on tomorrow evening when today's rugby game is finally shown on a TV channel I can get without having to pay any extra for.

When I was a kid and we lived near Leadville above 10,000 feet, we quickly fell into the habit of blaming everything on the altitude, including ridiculous, obviously unrelated things. Your friend didn't come to visit? It must be the altitude. This accidental watching of TV reminds me of that. It's useful to have something to blame, even if it doesn't make sense.

I think I might accidentally drink the last of the wine. DH

Just wait till they learn "but I didn't do it on purpose. . . ."

Hope the rugby wasn't too disappointing; we accidentally lost:)

Well the littlest one's comment (having never seen any rugby before) was "The ones in white don't catch the ball very well!" Then he wanted to know how long it would be till it was over, and could he please watch Dr. Who.

Couldn't find an email on your site for you!

I have several people shout 'accident' at me too, without the 'by ' or 'on' or 'al,' so you're way ahead of the curve - as 'we' Americans say.

I'm too worried about getting yet more spam to put my email address on this blog. I get email from blogger every time anyone posts a comment though, so I don't miss any comments. Saves me checking the site every day, only to find that no one has commented yet again!
