Me: Kellen, what would you like to be when you grow up?
K: (with snotty look, squinty eyes, and a shake of the head) nuthin
Me: I mean, I'm a dietitian and I teach people about food. Dad operates equipment and works for the town. What would you like to do?
K: Nuthin. Just whatever I want to do.
Me: Oh, so if you were not working and doing whatever you wanted to do...what would you do?
K: I'd do nuthin.
Yikes, should I be concerned?
Me: Kellen, what was your favorite part of the circus?
K: The elephant pooping!!!!!
Me: Oh. What else did you like? (sounding hopeful for more)
K: Nothin. Just the elephant pooping.
Dad: Yeah, that's pretty interesting.
K: Yeah, he pooped, just like me.
Dad: (laughing) But we don't clean up after you with a shovel and a garbage pail.
K: No, but maybe we should use a combine! Yeah, just like BOOF!
We haven't really figured out a definition for boof, but it is the word around here and seems to be applied in any way you could imagine.
