What do you call that big box of stupid?

My darling daughter is in the habit of watching TV first thing in the morning. For a long time, she'd get up, and come with me to the living room where our big TV is, and I'd offer her the option of watching Noggin since it's non-stop educational programming for kids her age.

So, she heard me say, every day, "watch noggin?" while indicating the big TV. She used to have a small TV in her room too, but it didn't get Noggin; it was just for tapes.

Long story short, she calls the big TV "noggin" and all other televisions are just "TV." If she wants to see one of her movies in the living room, she'll ask to watch the tape "on noggin."

(I find my daughter's language more interesting than mine; I hope you do too.)
