Slinky Slimy Slopher WHAT?!

Growing up, my parents and I never had open lines of communication. In fact, when I was a wee one of five years old, I remember walking to the bus stop with my mom singing:

Greasy Grimey Gopher Guts
Slinky Slimy Slopher Sluts

"Lindsay! My mom admonished me,"that's a bad word."
"Which one, Mama?" My five year old self wondered.
"I'll tell you when you're older."
Not understanding, and feeling like I did something so terribly wrong, I grew up thinking Slopher was a bad word!

I hope to learn from my parents' mistakes.

  3. HILARIOUS!!!!! I didn't know a lot of stuff growing up either b/c my parents tried to shelter me. My mom, specifically. This story is pretty dang funny though. Maybe you should teach your boys that "slopher" is a bad word so they don't use ACTUAL bad words, ha!
