Defining Moments

You know those moments in your life that define you as a person, they determine who you will be as an adult, they sum you up as a child?

I had such an experience in 3rd grade. I was calm and quiet back then. We must of had some free time in the classroom because I wasn't sitting at a desk when the incident occurred.

There were four of us sitting at the back of the classroom where the cubbies were. Two boys and two girls. At the time I probably assumed that was just coincidence, but, looking back, I'm positive it was fate.

We were gathered in a circle. We were singing. The song? The Name Game. Why, oh why, did we think that was a good idea? I guess I'll never know.

Anyway, my turn approached, and I selected a boy out of the circle named Tucker. It seemed harmless enough. I was so short-sighted back then.

Then I began to sing:

Tucker, Tucker, Bo Bucker
Banana Fanana Fo &*^@#!%

And that was it. What more can I say, it speaks for itself.



  1. I don't remember hearing about that one. I thought for sure it was going to be the other singing one.

    Love Mom

  2. not sure what you are trying to tell us katie!

  3. Does this define you now as a naive adult? or one prone to random acts of profanity?

  4. Haha! The sad thing is, I probably wouldn't have even known that was a bad word back in 3rd grade!

  5. HAHAHAHAHAHAAA that is so funny!
