cock-a-doodle do

I'm evidently being cock-a-doodle doo'd in the morning.

Who knew a sound would become a verb?

I am sleeping in the finished basement of my sister's home, just having arrived today. There are two doors to the room I'm sleeping in.

My nieces are, from what I understand, going to open each door and yell, "Cock-a-doodle doo!" in the morning to make sure I'm up.

I was asked for how long my sister was to restrain them before they could 'cock-a-doodle-doo' me.

I said 8:30. My boys groaned. They are sleeping in the vicinity. (Ringo is back in college, having had his first Dodge Ball game this evening. I suspect his college experience is going to be vastly different than mine was...)

I said, "This cock-a-doodle doo thing... they do this often?"

To which Bones replied with a look of amazement, "Mom. Are you kidding? I got cock-a-doodle-doo'd EVERY MORNING at Mimi and Big Daddy's house. EVERY.MORNING."

Hunh. Who knew?

So tomorrow if I wake up in time, I'll be tempted to catch it on video. Tempted.
