I’m sure there are more, but I can’t think of them just this minute.  all of the above are words that are not to be uttered in the presence of tony.  if I say one of these words, he hollers, “mama!!”  this just started about a week ago, and I’m not sure what triggered it.  he even chastised me the other day, when, thinking I had chosen a safe word, I told rich that I was going to kick his bumper.  tony – from the other room, mind you – said, “mama, you know I don’t like those words!”

how many 9 year-old boys do you know, who don’t like body-related words?
