Yesterday morning I was giving my son some medicine when I accidentally bumped his head on a kitchen cabinet. Without even thinking I said, “Bonk!”
My son laughed. So I tickled him a little and said, “You’re bonkers!” He laughed even harder.
Then I remembered where we would be fifteen minutes later and I said, “By the way, when we get to school you can’t go around calling people bonkers. I was being silly, but it wouldn’t be nice to say that to your classmates.”
To which he replied, “Okay. I’ll just call them crackers.”
