butt salad

Calmly here this morning, I was slicing banana bread for the kids and making my second cup of coffee. I climbed up on a chair to check the cabinet above the refrigerator for oven cleaner, explaining all the while that I needed to clean the oven because it is disgusting.
"What's that bowl up on there, mama?" asked my daughter, referring to my huge wooden bowl on top of the fridge. "What do you use it for?"

"Oh, that's mama's salad bowl. I don't use it for anything but salad."

"BUTT SALAD! YOU SAID BUTT SALAD! WHAT'S A BUTT SALAD?!?!"
