pesky warthog

The Kidling came home from pre-school early this week complaining of a pain in her foot. For all of her kvetching about the terrible name of this ailment, she sure did like to say it: plantar warthog. Oh yes, The Kidling earnestly informed us that her teacher informed her that the funny looking thing on the bottom of her foot was one of two things:

  1. A blister, or
  2. plantar warthog.

That’s right. Warthog.


At long last, another entry for The Dictionary:

Plan-tar Wart-hognoun. A wart caused by a virus located on the underside of the foot. Plantar Wart + Warthog

  1. What a riot. Makes me think of an elderly patient my doctor brother once had to contend with, who informed him with great seriousness that she could save him some time because she had already been diagnosed with ‘fireballs in her Eucharist.’ My brother said that it was everything he could do to keep a straight face while informing her that he thought it *might* be ‘fibroids in her uterus’ instead….. 😉
