Jackism

This morning, Jack was walking around saying, "Douche! Douche! Douche!" I was sorta wondering about it, when he asked me, "Mom, what does 'douche' mean anyway?"

I gave him a general definition and warned him to be careful with the word because it can be considered derogatory to say that to someone. That it can mean dirty or gross.

"If it is sorta a bad word, then why do people say it after they make a slam dunk in basketball?" he asked.

It took me a moment. "You mean 'Swoosh'?" I asked.

"Not 'Douche'?"

"No, I'm pretty sure they don't say 'Douche!' It's definitely 'Swoosh!'"

"Oh, okay. I guess they do sound sorta the same"

And he walked away saying under his breath, "Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!"
