"You're a Butt"

Last night, after dinner with the family, my first-grader nephew tried to tell me something from inside the minivan as I said my goodbyes to my parents. He was motioning to me, and then pointing towards his butt. But what could it mean?

I'm a butt?

He rolled down the window to tell me, sure enough, "You're a butt."

That'a first grade speak for, "your the best"

JerseySjov said...

sorry, candy, but it's actually first-grade speak for "there's something not quite right about you, so i'm going to equate you with my ass"
it's not necessarily an expression of distaste, think of it as more a temporary status until you reach complete butt-hood or do something cool to eliminate yourself from the butt category.

I've been a butt all my life. Nothin' wrong with that.

Mr. Shife said...

Well at least you are not a butt with explosive diarrhea. Or at least he was not calling you a taint.

Rachel said...

That is hilarious. I'm glad he clarified.

That kid is going to be powerful one day.

Candy: That's how I took it! Thanks for coming by.

Jov: Thanks for clearing that up, but why am I more confused . . . and feeling like a butt?

Heff: You are in a band called Buttlick, yes?

Shife: If he had called me a taint, I'd of legally adopted him on the spot.

Rachel: Yes. He hammered the point home. Thanks for coming by!

Polk: He has a bright future as a straight-shooter; a guy who tells it like it is.

You know all three of them adore you. The butt comment was meant with the deepest regards.

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Radio: This one is. That's for sure.

Pistols: Zing!!

Anon: I know this. They're pretty rad kids.

Kids can be so precocious; it tickles me to death sometimes.

What I do in situations like that is to make sure the other adults aren't looking, then look directly into the child's eyes and make the neck-slitting motion with my finger.

You don't have to take that crap from him, Dr. Ken. Next time you just him in the eyes and tell him that his words can't hurt you anymore.

I didn't realize they were teaching sign language in first grade these days. Very progressive.
