Remember Bobo’s colonoscopy last week? MP does. We arrived at gymnastics Friday and pulled into a parking spot next to Bobo, who was sitting, waiting for us in his truck. MP saw him and smiled.
“Heeeyy … I didn’t know POOP DUDE was gonna be here today …”
And now Bobo has a new name. The beautiful thing is she came up with it completely on her own.
So last night Bobo and my brother (Uncle Paulie) were over — Uncle Paulie’s visiting from Denver with my SIL and nephews — and the whole Poop Dude thing came up. And because Bobo is such an easy target, especially when my brother and I get together …
Uncle Paulie to MP: Why do you call Bobo Poop Dude?
MP: Because he had to have a tube put in his POOPHOLE!
UP: (laughing) Do you know WHY Bobo had to have a tube in his poophole?
MP: Ummm …
UP: (nodding, laughing) Because he LIKES it.
MP: (laughing) Noooo! The DOCTOR had to look around.
UP: Ooooh. There’s a special kind of doctor that puts a tube up your tush. Do you know what that doctor is called?
MP: (shakes head)
UP: That would be a DEN-TIST.
My brother. He sucks.
