Mistaken words were always some of my favorites. Here are a couple with my kids. We went yurt camping on the Oregon coast. There was a family of racoons that would throw pinecones at you when you left the yurt. They are now and will forever be affectionately coined racartoons!
When we were young and would ask where our dad was my mom would often tell us, "He went to shit and the hogs ate him. Which generally was the bathroom and no, I have no idea why. Lol. Anyway, it stuck. I ended up telling my kids the same thing on occassion...except what they heard was "hog zatem" which they apparently thought was the bathroom.so of I asked if they had seen their dad they would tell me he was in the hog zatem. Never corrected them, just giggled. ??
