Monday Morning Stories With Mookie - Episode 104

The Time Mookie Thought His Kids Asked About Boobs

This one happened last week, and is too good not to share.

I was driving the kids to school one morning, and they were asking questions about anything and everything like they always do. The oldest boy is eleven, and brother is six. One of the kids mentioned that they had seen a car somewhere that looked like a dog.  I started laughing, and said that when they are older they will need to see the movie "Dumb and Dumber" because one of the characters in the movie drives a van that looks like a dog.
One of the best vans ever

My youngest son said that's probably what it was from because he said his Mom briefly had it on while flipping channels one day. When I mentioned we had the DVD at home, both of the kids asked if they could watch it when we got home. While I personally would have liked to watch it (as I haven't seen it in awhile), I replied that it probably wasn't "appropriate" for kids their age. Luckily we were sitting at a stop light while the conversation continued.

That was when my youngest son asked:
"Does it have a lot of boops in it?"

That is NOT what I heard him say. I heard "Does it have a lot of boobs in it?"

My brain had a flurry of thoughts and responses as to what I heard him say. One thought was "No, there isn't any boobs but you briefly see part of Lauren Holly's ass." Then I remembered I was talking to a six-year-old, and why would a six-year-old be asking if a movie had boobs in it? I turned around and looked at my eleven-year-old - who looked back at me quizzically as to why I was looking at him so funny. I turned to the six-year-old and shockingly said:

"Did you say boobs?"

His reply was: "No. Boops. Like when they boop out the bad words."

"Yeah. There are boops in it."

I turned back to the steering wheel and it was all I could do not to laugh us into the other lane of traffic.

Hopefully it will be quite a few more years before he is asking me any sort of question that wonders if a movie has "boobs" in it. However, when that appropriate time comes, I will proudly say to him "No that movie didn't have any boobs but it would been awesome if it did."
