Laughing Over Buns

Last night at the dinner table, Rama asked, Can I say “butt”?

So is “butt” acceptable for dinner-table conversation? I thought so, so I said yes. (Earlier, I had pointed out that “utot” was impolite to say over a meal. Likewise “poop”)

Apparently, she wanted to share a bit of a memory.

Rama: Nu’ng sumakay kami ng airplane ni Mommy, binigay nu’ng Miss, tinapay na mukhang “butt.”

I had forgotten about that. It was on our flight from Manila to Toronto. We both had a good laugh about that bun. Funny what sort of things kids remember.
