Crud #183

My baby sister is five going on fifteen. She always has a lot to say and does so with an amazing vocabulary. It was a hot day and we had just gotten into the car when she said, "Hurry turn on the car, it's sophisticating in here!" I was puzzled and could not figure out what she had meant, so I asked, "Sophisticating?" and she replied in an annoyed tone "Yes, sophisticating... Like it's so hot I can't breathe... Duh"... Suffocating and sophisticating do sound alike but sophisticating isn't even a word. I was surprised to hear the confidence in her pronouncing a word incorrectly because she usually will ask me, "Okay, tell me if I'm using this right..." (& that's when she says the word in question in a sentence)

*The warm car wasn't actually 'sophisticating'... However, she IS a drama queen (;
