Johnson’s buds, what?
It was a typical Sunday afternoon. It was cleaning day at our house. I was washing the floor in my bedroom. Reggie was vacuuming the boys’ bedroom. Ryan was cleaning the bathroom sink and counter. Ryland was dusting in the living room downstairs. And my husband was cleaning the car in the driveway.
I heard him come inside the house and call from the bottom of the stairs, “Ryan, give me two Johnson’s buds.”
Ryan came to my bedroom and said, “Mommy, I don’t understand Daddy. What does he want me to give him?”
“Give him Q-tips,” I said.
And he immediately did so.
He then came back to me and asked, “What did Daddy say that he wanted?”
“Johnson’s buds. That’s what we call it in the Philippines.”
“That sounds funny. I’ve never heard of that before.”
“Well, it’s a brand name. It’s Q-tips here in Canada. We don’t have that there. We only have Johnson’s buds in the Philippines.”
“Then why didn’t he just say Q-tips?”
“Daddy thinks he’s still in the Philippines.” 🙂
