Welcome to another edition of “Scribblings from Close of the Ground”, wisdom from the mouths of babes, namely, Rocky and The Chick, my two daughters.
R: Hi, Rocky here!
C: And I’m The Chick, we’re Ted’s kids and we’re going to tell you how not to be a Bootyhead!!
R: Ha ha! Bootyhead!! Bootyhead!!
C: Rocky! Stop!
R: Sorry! (hee hee!)
C: Anyway, sometimes when I go to bed, I can’t fall asleep because my mind is all filled up with bad stuff.
R: Like the monsters on Scooby Doo!
C: Sometimes I think about bad stuff or scary stuff and my head gets so filled up that I can’t fall asleep.
R: Then she gets out of bed and whines that she can’t fall asleep and mom and dad get really cranky.
C: Rocky! Anyway, Dad says that if I’m going to use my head for thinking about bad or scary stuff, then I might as well just sit on my head because I’m not using it the right way anyway!
R: Then you’re a Bootyhead!! And you have stinky thinking!!
C: Rocky! I was supposed to say that! Dad says that your head is the smartest muscle in your body and you should use it for thinking about good stuff, like being the best in school or having lots of fun.
R: Dad says if you use your head for thinking about scary monsters, that’s like using a hammer to beat an egg! I don’t know what that means…
C: It means you’re disrespecting the tool, fool!
R: Fool!! Ha ha ha!
C: So your booty is for sitting on, and your head is for thinking about all the cool stuff you’re going to do, and don’t use your head to make yourself scared or you might as well sit on it, because you’re not using it the way you’re supposed to.
R: Then you’re a Bootyhead and you have stinky thinking! Better get a check-up from the neck up!
C: So now when I go to sleep, I think about playing with my friends, or my favorite toys, or how fun it is to learn how to ride my bike. That makes me feel good and I fall asleep fast.
R: I think about my Papu.
C: That’s her dumb stuffed lamb…
R: Bootyhead! You’re being a Bootyhead!
C: Sorry Rocky. So remember to use the mind in your head for good stuff and think about wonderful things and not bad stuff, because you only have one head and it’s very valuable.
R: Like pirate’s treasure but it’s not buried!
C: This is Rocky and The Chick saying the rule is not to disrespect the tool, fool! Use your head the right way, and that is to make life super cool and fun and to make you happy! Bye!
