How poodle became a bad word...
A few weeks ago, while we were still in the States, I took the kids to Wendy's to eat. On their kids meal bags, they were featuring different dogs and cats. Abbey and Ethan wanted to know the names of the different kinds of dogs. Things were going great until we got to "poodle". As soon as I told them what it was called, they both began giggling hysterically. I will admit that it took me a few moments to get the joke. Don't worry. If you haven't gotten it yet, you will in a minute. After that, Abbey would ask me, "Mama, what was the black dog on the Wendy's bag called?" I would answer "poodle" and she would look over at Ethan and say, "It was a POOO-dle!" and of course, they would giggle themselves to death. And that is how poodle became a bathroom word and thus banned in our house.
Is old enough to vote, now old enough to be president. I have 1 wonderful husband and 2 marvelous kids. I live and work in Taiwan with the afore mentioned husband and kids. We have been missionaries here together since 2001, but Chris landed on the island back in 1981. He has been leaving his mark ever since. I came as a new bride with her head in the clouds and it helped tremendously with culture shock! If you want to know anything else about us, you will just have to read the posts.
