Dad: Do you want a bum bag to help carry your stuff?
Son: I don’t want a bum bag! That’s gross!
The difference in generations was all too evident and I had a good laugh. Not just at hubby’s use of ‘bum bag’ but at the complete incomprehension from my son. And I guess that’s the same with all language – new or old – if we don’t understand it, or have a point of reference for it, then it does sound VERY odd.
