-ers

I come home and my son is wearing a white shirt, a bow tie, and a towel over his arm. He tells me he’s a butler. And we have this conversation:

Me: Do you know how to buttle?

My son: Huh?

Me: Readers read. Builders build. So butlers buttle.

My son: How do you buttle?

Me: Well you’re the butler, tell me.

My son: Butlers don’t buttle.

Me: Sure they do. Planters plant. Gardeners garden. Drivers drive. Fingers fing.

My son: Fingers don’t fing.

Me: Do you know what a fing is?

My son: No.

Me: Then how do you know?

    Never curb a son’s enthusiasm for serving his Dad. It will diminish quickly enough on its own,

    Response #1: Always be truthful with your children, the world is so full of liars it’s nice to know they can at least come home and find truth.

    Response #2: Bingo!

    Sounds like a conversation I could have had with my Dad. He took BSing to Doctorate levels. 🙂

    But… but… “buttle” is used as a verb in Andrew Lloyd Weber’s “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”. (Of course, it’s used as a gag.) I get a big kick out of recording on paper my son’s little zings/witticisms. HAPPY NEW YEAR, UNCLE.

    Just wait. Payback is a bitch. They get to mess with you when your old and senile.

    Actually, “buttle” is a legitimate (albeit slangy) word, the first citations of which are immediately after the American Civil War. Kudoi (“kudos” is singular) to Uncle for enlarging his son’s vocabulary.

After several weeks of taking Viagra, I got used to it and took the drug only on the weekends. Noticing the changes, my girlfriend started to ask me why I'm so active on weekends. I had to honestly confess everything. She was not upset but supported me. So thanks to Viagra, I made sure that I'm loved just like the way I am.
