Glossary of Terms 2

Pulitzer blasting

Pulitzer blasting

This glossary is more for dads who want to sound cool in front of their friends, unlike the original glossary, which is more used to comprehend the nonsensical nature of the Undad.

Blasting a D: To change a diaper.

Blasting a double D: To change a really nasty diaper.

Burning down the D farm: Completely disrobing the little human and putting them in the shower because of extreme diaper related nastiness.

Crunching: That look on your child’s face when they are expelling waste from their bumholes. There is a great look of consternation and concentration.

Horse Whistling: Trying to get your child’s attention to no avail.

I Am Shiva the God of Death: A crying jag that is without end. The world is collapsing. The four horsemen approach.

Crawlpocolypse: You know that one thing that you don’t want your child to touch? That one thing you use a lot and you are constantly taking it away from your child? The crawlpocoplypse is how fast they move toward said object when it is left unattended.

Fog Eyes: The parent’s tired stare.

Fog Mind: When a parent says, “What?” to the simplest question.

Idealhistamine: When you look at your spawn and see the magical future.

Slumberlord: The sleep of a thousand sleeps. The parent’s torpor.

Bragasm: Talking to anyone who will listen about your offspring.

Realitasmagoria: Realizing that parenting has been done a million¬†times before and that there really isn’t anything new happening in your life thus whatever you talk about has been talked about a million times over and will be again.

* A big thank you to Mr. Adam Mitchell for introducing me to Courtney Barnett (see viz below).

  • Who would win in a fight, Mr. Rogers or Jesus?
    Scott C. Bourgeois and I talk about our respective adoptions, what part of your body you should eat first if you were trapped on an island, all the effing podcasts he is involved with, and the best of kid lit.
  • Jana O'Connor PT 2
    The second of two parts of our Jana O'Connor interview (please listen to the first one if you already haven't). To get to the point: Jana is a jewel in the crown of the Canadian arts scene. She is triple H (not the goddamn wrestler): humble, humorous, and ensconced with humanity. We talk about working […]
  • Jana O'Connor PT 1
    As the Etruscans put it, this one was a doozy. Join me and Jana O'Connor as we cover everything from antiquated idioms to how to butt in line at the dentist (and everything in between). We talked so long that I had to cut it in two. I had to cut it in two because […]
  • I think the Jedi have it all wrong
    There is some rampant nerdery as Darren Pleavin and I talk horror movies, horror feelings, invisible motorcycles, family horror, and some scary stuff that left us holding each other, cerebrally.
