By the way, a boo boo is a mistake or error, I suppose that is connected to the plague too eh?


Really? The OED gives the definition as a trick or prank, dating from the early 20th century. What's your source, Ariesgirl?


Maybe it's a regionalism, because we used it that way growing up. Saying you had a boo boo meant you were hurt; saying you made a boo boo meant you had accidently messed something up.

Just like how you're patronising every other member on here. We get you think you have a superior intellect, or that the stars have aligned to stick a pole up your butt, but it's not an excuse to act like a jerk. We manage to get along fine here, even when we passionately disagree, but it seems that you just enjoy being abrasive.

Retrograde, you have a way with words! Laughing That's really funny. I think I'll store it in my mind for future use.
