Where Vulgar = Bold + Crass

posted by Momo Fali on July 27, 2008

The other day we were in the car, when my daughter looked up from the book she was reading and asked, “Mom, what does vulgar mean?”

I replied, “Well, it means bad. Like dirty bad.”

Then my son jumped in the conversation, and simultaneously brought it to an abrupt end when he proudly said, “I’m vulgar!”

    I think we just discovered the next generations “cool” or “rad” — “vulgar!”

  • Maureen

    Hahahahahaha! Gotta love him for his enthusiasm.

  • Aunt Debbi/kurts mom

    I think I may be raising his twin seperated at birth. Seriously.

  • AlisonH

    You know you get to torture him with these in front of his friends when he’s a teenager…

  • chefmom

    TOO FUNNY!!! And he’s proud of it!

  • Bean

    I like what Neil said. I can hear it now … “Totally vulgar, man!”

  • sinisterdan

    I hope that the boy was rewarded for being honest on such a philosophical level.

  • Misty

  • Mama Dawg

    Out of the mouths of babes.

    Oh my God I love that kid Momo. Ive just had a lovely catch up read. The scar thing, ouch, have you tried vitamin E oil? And I definitely think it looks like a burn of some kind.

    The magazines are funny, I’m in the middle bit too though I get more spots than when I was a teenage r which is just rude.

    Misses E and M are both buggers for getting out of bed. Miss E at least sleeps through the night but Miss M seems to prefer doing the ‘scare the buggery out of mummy by getting in her face and hovering till she wakes up’ thing too. Shiver.

  • ribeezie

    LOL! That’s hilarious! Did he say it with his chest stuck out and everything? Hehe…

  • Stella

    He’s just so funny!
