Bluffed and Poofed
Rives (7) has his own way of communicating how he feels. If he’s eaten too much, he’ll put his hand on his stomach and say, “I’m bluffed.” Translation: stuffed. If he’s tired, then he says he’s “Poofed.” Trans: pooped, or tired.
Last night he was looking a little run down. I said, “How you feeling?”
He said, “I’m bloofed.”
I looked at Christy. “What’s that mean?”
‘It means he’s bluffed and poofed but too tired and full to say both.”
And yes, this will definitely find its way into a book. It’s too good.
