Your incredibly awesome word for today

30 Nov

I was telling (with flannelboard) the story of “Barnaby Bear’s Batter Bowl,” in which our hero, Barnaby, falls into his birthday cake batter bowl and is unable to get out. One by one, his friends join him and try and pull him out; to no avail. Finally, Mouse arrives, and wants to help too. The other animals tease him, saying he can’t possibly help because he’s too small. Mouse thinks, and comes up with the perfect solution: he crawls into the bowl, tickles Bear on the nose with his whiskers, and causes Bear to sneeze, thus blowing himself out of the bowl.

I asked the kids what they thought happened.

One young man answered: “He blesshooed!”

I do believe that word is a combination of “Bless You” and “Ah-choo.” And I’m going to begin using it in my daily conversation.
