Boofers, eh? Where to begin? Well, I guess it all started a long time ago when I was a just a little pup. The story I heard was that Dad used to sit at the table, after a meal and stretch, The resulting exhale/sigh sounded like 'boofers'.
Boofers has since become a family word.
When to use boofers? Well, Boofers is used when remarking about a negative situation. As an example, one would use it as such:
Zach was walking across the kitchen and dropped his cup, resulting in a huge mess of broken glass and water. Looking at the mess, Zach says, "Boofers*."
*Note: the short form, 'boof' can be substituted, or the semi-sarcastic form, 'booferrific' (i.e. "Well that was just booferrific").
Boofers has become such a normal word in our household that I think, when he finds out it is not a real word, Declan will need counseling.
He uses it all the time and, at one point, even had a song about it.
...and by the way...this recording, which was exclusive to Uncle Gabe and Aunt Karla, is now available to the masses.
Good job, Lil Man.
