My son said to me the other day, “Mom, whobody’s outside?”
“I don’t think there’s anybody outside, bud,” I said.
“Somebody out dare, Mom. Whobody is it?”
I know it’s part of the process to let kids discover words and then gently correct them when they mispronounce, no matter how cute they are. I reluctantly repeat the words “video” instead of “boodoo” and “computer” instead of “puku” but whobody? Whobody makes sense.
I propose we add “whobody” to the English lexicon and anyone who disagrees will be forced to watch a boodoo on my puku of my son adorably asking “Whobody’s dare?” over and over until ya’ll see the genuis of it.
