Saskboy has challenged bloggers to use the word Vagina in a post yesterday. I am a day late, but I have good exuse. So I was trying to think of some clever post about the word "Vagina". I tried to find out who named 'it' ;'that'. Come on, let's be real, 'Penis' is a much friendlier word. My hubby tells my son he has a wee wee, but I correct him and say son you have a 'Penis'. Why? Well I don't find the word so offensive. There are other names for a penis, but not so many as a Vagina. Why, again? VAGINA...eeeww. It is just so abrasive and out there. So other names have naturally won out other than the name of orgin...as taken from the Vagina Monolouges "coochie, a hoo-hoo, a fluff ... actually, almost any word that could apply to a pet guinea pig seems fit for the job." So if this baby is a girl... I wonder, when it comes time to potty train, will she have a Vagina or a guinea pig?
UPDATE: Just found out the Latin name for Vagina means literally "sheath" or "scabbard" . Scabbard.. that sounds so.. pretty.
