Semantics are everything

I'm going to take a small break from my rather heavy posts about the grief and loss of the past month to share a silly thing that happened yesterday.
The Tyke came into the kitchen sobbing as if his heart were breaking. His hands were behind him on his little bum and he kept saying that his back hurt. Dilbert asked him, "Does your butt hurt too?" The Tyke replied as though he'd been trying to convey something for a very long time and had grown so frustrated that he'd boiled over into anger. "THAT. IS. MY. TUSHIE!!!!!!"
Semantics are very important.
