I got an email from Wendy the other day with a subject line that said “Poo.” She wasn’t going to be able to make it to our Seattle Mom Blogs party and she was expressing her disappointment excrementally. As is often the case with Wendy, she made me laugh. Her email reminded me of a conversation I’d had with Laylee a couple of days earlier.
Me: OH POO!
Laylee: Did you just say “poo”?
Me: Umm… Yes I did.
Laylee: Did you mean “poo” like “Pooh” the bear?
Me: Umm… Yes I did. Oh POOH-bear I’m annoyed right now!
Laylee: Cause that’s what I thought.
I know he’s a bear of very little brain, but is that really any reason for so many people to take his name in vain so callously?
