While observing sandwich filling choices at Subway

“Ew, what is that do you think?”

“Maybe it’s supposed to be meatballs. Looks like dooky though.”

(pause)

“You know, I think the word dooky might be one of my favorite words.”

“It would be funny if you could casually work the word dooky into conversation somewhere, like your job.”

“Sadly, that would not be difficult.”

I use the word “doodie” nearly every day. While it is not quite “dooky,” I believe it runs a tight race to top the list of great words that we rarely use as adults. I typically use it when speaking to one of my students, and often flower it up by adding “-head” or “-nose” to the end of it. For instance, “Josh, stop being a doodiehead to Jessica.” Give “doodie” a try in its various forms. I bet you’ll like it just as much. Now, I’m off to Subway to have a dooky sandwich…

no, what is sad is that dooky does not easily work its way into a conversation at seminary.

Is “dooky” a legitimate Scrabble word? Oh, just so you know, Ben is a doodiehead.
