Can You Hear Me Now?

I think I speak clearly.  Not always, but for the most part I can enunciate with the best of 'em. ;->

My latest irritation is when I'm having a converstaion with my girls and they don't hear my words correctly.  Some examples:

13 yrs. old:   "Huh? A standrich?" 'No', I reply, 'I asked if you wanted a sand-wich.'

10 yrs. old:  "What's a plumpkin blatch?"  'I said, we're going to the Pumpkin Patch!'

What the hell?

This has been going on a while, and I've had their hearing checked so I know that parts o.k.  I guess they've just found (another) way to irritate mom.  Lucky me

13 yrs. old:  "Why would I go punch my teeth?"  'BRUSH!  Brush your teeth!'

Oh for God's sake
