The second meaning of have dis is the more frustrating of the two. Barrett is a very good helper, and he likes to bring things to the people they belong to. He also likes to bring me things that he has no use for.
Things Barrett has brought me while saying have dis:
- a full glass of tea, which he was holding over his head
- numerous orange peels (he expects me to replace them with a fresh orange slice)
- my shoes (which he waited for me to put on, even though it was eight at night and I was in pajamas)
- a half-consumed cracker
- a sand bur he pulled out of his own foot (he's a tough little turd)
- my debit card ( apparently he found my wallet)
- diapers (I joyfully collect them...he seems to think)
Jason said that he was once rudely awaken by Barrett saying "have dis" and shoving a cold piece of crumpled toast up his nose. I have vainly attempted to rest on the couch, only to have toys and various household items piled on me, Barrett uttering "have dis" with each addition to the pile. Barrett often brings me the broom or the vacuum "have dis". What are you trying to say, Barrett?
