Last night we were reading books before bed. We decided on “Toot and Puddle’s I’ll be Home for Christmas” by Holly Hobbie (yes, that’s the author’s name) that Olivia picked out at the school library last week. We’d never read one of these before but apparently they’re popular enough that there’s a TV show.
Gabe starts to read. Pretty soon everyone’s laughing over the thought of someone named “Toot”. You know, because everything around here is potty humor. So Toot equals fart equals funny.
We all start to giggle.
The story then continues as Toot talks about his “lucky nut”. I’m starting to think that Holly Hobbie either has boys and knew this would be hilarious or has never had boys and had no idea this would be such a hilarious book for our family. Anyway, we’re all in hysterics over the lucky nut.
Now take a guess where these characters live? WOODCOCK!! Not just Woodcock, but the “Woodcock Pocket”! Are you kidding me???
Then Toot gets warm by a fire. What’s funnier than a warm Toot? A hot Toot. A wet Toot. A frozen Toot. A wet, hot Toot. A diarrhea Toot! A wet Toot puddle!!! The fun was endless.
Finally Toot gets back to Woodcock Pocket, finds his lucky nut and gets warm. The Townsend family was dying of laughter over this silly book.
See how having boys ruins books???
