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.


  1. Oh my gosh...I am laughing so damn hard right now. You were and still are so freaking cute. Love it....you slut.

  2. awwwwwwwwww!!! I can just imagine this conversation!!

  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!

  4. I agree--our kids need and deserve our open, honest communication. For sure!
