Me: How was school? Did you make any new friends?
Eli: I made a new friend on the bus. He showed me how to do this with my middle finger.
Me: He showed you how to shoot a bird…lovely.
Eli: He also said to say "Fut you" when you show people your middle finger.
Me: Hummm, interesting. It's not "Fut" and I am not telling you the correct word.
Eli: I showed my middle finger to all my friends at school today.
Me: No more "Futs", no more fingers. Grown adults get in fist-fights over this because it the worst thing you can do or say.
Eli: Really? Well my friend said he showed his finger and said "fut you" to the man who ran over his dog.
