That was the phrase sweet, mild Hezzy was repeating over and over and we prepared to leave for Great Wolf Lodge on Monday. Finally, I headed over to him and said, “Hezekiah, why are you saying, ‘don’t butt-paw me?'”
“I read it in a book” was his answer.
“What book?” I asked. He held up a very conservative Christian reader we have…
“It says “don’t butt-paw me” in there?” I asked for clarification.
“Yes” he answered…and showed me the phrase which actually read: “Don’t ‘but Pa’ me”….
