Beautiful Two-Word Combinations, Immature and Otherwise

March 17, 2011 | By | Comments (1)

After weeks of mounting evidence, I came to the conclusion last night that if you want to get our youngest son (who will turn 4 on Monday!) to laugh, all you have to do is say STINKY BUTT. Blame it on his two older brothers and the potty humor that reigns in my household, but STINKY BUTT represents the ne plus ultra of word combinations for a certain preschooler. Really, there are no two more wonderful words in the language than STINKY BUTT. If you are nearly 4, that is.

Being much older than nearly 4, I can actually think of quite a few that I would put ahead of S.B., in terms of beauty, promise, joy, loveliness. They are:

NEW CAR

SPRING MORNING

AFTERNOON OFF

OPEN BAR

CHERRY PIE

ENTHUSIASTIC RESPONSE

LABRADOR PUPPY

GRIPPING NOVEL

SISTERLY DEVOTION

FRESH PAINT

BIRTHDAY PARTY

TAX REFUND

EMPTY BEACH

LONG DINNER

NO MEETINGS

LAUGHING KIDS

Which brings me back to STINKY BUTT. And if I’m in the right frame of mind, that one makes me laugh too.
