Can't Stop Laughing!

My sister-in-law tells me she hardly ever goes on Facebook because she feels like it's junior high revisited. In some ways she's right, but at other times it makes me laugh hysterically. Maybe it's because I still have the maturity level of a middle schooler.  Today is one of those days as one funny events unfolded and a memory that made me laugh so hard my tummy hurt came back from something my sister posted.

Meet Kathy. She is one of my bloggy friends who hangs at The Giggling Trucker's Wife. She has a great sense of humor and writes interesting posts that always hold my attention. Truthfully with my ADD attention span, that's an accomplishment. Knowing Kathy through her site and our connections with GBE2, Writer's Post, and BBF, I've come to see her as a highly moral, respectable person. So I laughed hysterically when I visited her site to try to find her email address (which I still don't have, uh hm) and send her a private message. She's one of those people I haven't accepted as a Facebook friend because I've never actually met her, but oh, it gets harder and harder not to.

Anyway, when I didn't see her email, I clicked on her website. Wow, Kathy! I didn't know about your side business. From her porn site, she offers everything from... Oh, gosh, I can't even write the things she offers because it's too dang embarrassing. So, that's what you do when your husband's on his long trucking journeys out of town. See why I don't typically FB friend people I haven't met in person!

In Kathy's defense, she moved her blog and changed her blog's address; however, she failed to remove the domain change from her FB information page. I sure hope her mama, grandma, and dear Aunt Rosemary didn't visit her page! She'd have some explaining to do.

As for my sister, I don't know if you'd find this funny or not since it was one of those goofy kid private jokes that we probably haven't laughed about in over thirty years.

My sister posted that she's getting her first piano lesson tomorrow. Sounds innocent enough, right? I posted, "Next time I'm in Boca, I want a concert! You can play..." 

Now before I tell you what she can play, you need a little background information. In my odd but wonderful family, we had a unique word for a person's bottom. I never realized that the rest of the world did not call a butt a "tootsie." I even went to one of my favorite websites to see if they recognized the word "tootsie" for buttocks. 

Main Entry:
buttocks [buht-uhk] 
Part of Speech: noun
Definition: rear
Synonyms: back end, backside, behind, bottom, bum, butt, derriere, fanny, fundament, gluteus maximus, haunches, hindquarters, posterior, rear, rump, seat

Main Entry: bottom
Part of Speech: noun
Definition: rear end
Synonyms: backside, behind, breech, bum*, butt*, buttocks , derriere, fanny, fundament, posterior, rear, rump, seat, tail, tush

Next, I looked up "tootsie" in the Urban Dictionary. Nada! It means toes and some gross things, so I won't even supply you with a link.

So where the heck is "tootsie" in the dictionary? Doesn't anyone out their in bloggy world call a "bum" a "tootsie?" More curiously, why in the world did my family use that word for that term?

Anyhow, Barb was a flute player, and we (or I should say SHE) made up words to one of her concert pieces. It went Do do do do do do, my tootsie love you. My tootsie eats meat. And where in the world did we get meat from? I swear, we were totally innocent children singing this song and being silly. I figured you wouldn't find it funny, but thanks for sticking around anyway.

I love how each family has their own little words that they come up with. I have never called it a tootsie. A tushie maybe. I guess I don't want to think about chewing on a butt when I eat a tootsie roll lol. On a side note, I really want to know where those butt chairs are located. I must have my picture made on one. Then my husband can really joke about me having a lot of junk in my trunk hahaha!

Never heard it called a "back end," either - when I think of that, I think of movie deals.

Check Urban Dictionary, maybe you'll get lucky. (Or UNlucky... I was so disappointed when I heard about tossing salad).

LMAO, that is so incredibly funny I can hardly breathe from laughing!! I decided to pay a little visit to my ole domain name and almost choked on myself from laughing so hard. It is a good thing that someone else took over that because I am the least likely person to know anything about stuff like that. It reminds me of when I was in high school and my 4H project for Personality/Dating won top honors and was selected to go to the state fair where it did equally as well. How ironic that I would make it to the state fair on a subject I was practically clueless about. In the new webmaster of the trucker's wife defense, in this crazy sells so more power to them. Thank you for featuring me on your site and for making my day! LOL

Oh this one made me laugh and my family has it's own compliment of words that no one else understands, so yoru "tootsie" fits perfectly to me. And just to funny about Kathy's site. You are right, she'd NEVER be associated with the new owner, but gosh - it's sooo heard to keep track of all those little ways that we put out there on the internet to connect with people. Glad you caught it, told her and then blogged about it - I will keep an eye on her blog as I'm sure there will be one there about it as well!

Hi Joyce,
I enjoy reading Kathy's blog too. I'm not sure about what you wrote though about her side business. I'm afraid she'll be offended with that. I hope all's well.
(please tell me you're just joking). I am very gullible:(

I have never heard tootsie in that context either and I play the piano. I hope she has the appropriate piece ready for you when you visit. I also am a fan of Kathy (in her "g" rated blog). I missed the other, but as my husband says I have no attention to detail, lol.

Gwen Gardner said...

*snort* I wonder what comes up under "tutu"? That was our word...

3 letters: LOL

Jo said...

Joyce, I got a message from a fellow blogger several months ago, stating something to the effect that I posted a really graphic - sexually explicit type of post several years ago that she tracked down. I've barely had my blog for a year! I know how you feel, Kathy! (and yes, I would be the last person who would blog about any kind of pornographic content!)

Bum-bum is the term used for our butt around here! ;)

Janet Gardner said...

No sorry, can't say I ever called it a tootsie lol! Mostly Butt, love the pictures!

Tootsies are toes in my house. Posteriors are tushies or hineys or butts or bums. :O)

Oh, and that Kathy!!!!! It's always the sweet, unassuming ones...

I know. It couldn't have happened to a more innocent blogger. That's what makes it even funnier.

Thanks to all for the comments!
