Seriously?

Doopa? What’s a Doopa? Shorthand for doodle pad? What’s that got to do with hair?

In class the other day, my partner accidentally kicked me somewhere she shouldn’t. It didn’t hurt and we had a good laugh, but I continue to be grateful that I’m not a boy.

Update October 29: According to the online Urban Dictionary, Doopa means butt in Polish. Now I’m even more confused. One hardly ever sees hairy butts in Japan.

  1. Doopa? Good grief. Years ago I heard that around Pittsburgh to refer to somebody’s bottom as in “Knocked on her doopa.”

  2. Ain’t language fun? A Khmer taxi driver/English teacher once asked me to explain the difference between “vomit” and “puke.” I loved it.

    1. That’s a good one. One of the trainers at my gym once asked me to explain the difference between “crazy” and “stupid”. I said crazy means your brain is broken and stupid means your brain is weak. He still didn’t get it, so I said, “OK. Eating a McDonald’s hamburger is stupid. Eating the paper it was wrapped in is crazy.” The light dawned.

Any opinions about that? I love to hear from you.
