We were at my dad and step-mom's house for dinner last night. Our niece Abby played a little joke on my dad and he said, "Oh, you..." I really expected him to finish the sentence with "Puke Chunk." Puke Chunk?! What the hell?!
Then I realized my dad used to call me PUKE CHUNK when I was little and would give him a hard time. As we all laughed hysterically at my recollection, he admitted that indeed that was one of his pet names for me. Talk about a repressed childhood memory. But, luckily for me, last night was the first time I wrapped my head around just how GROSS that phrase is. When I was a kid, I just thought it was a term of endearment.
I feel like so many questions have been answered all of a sudden. And, I feel like maybe my dad owes a few coins to the therapy fund himself!
Here I am with my big sister, Brandy.
