Have you got it: the X factor? That little something that wibbles and wobbles and follows behind you?
By the way, if you were in London this summer, then you would have had a chance to see a replica of St. Paul’s Cathedral made out of jelly (as depicted in the photo above)! That – and a thousand other jellies – were a part of the Architectural Jelly Competition. Yet another sign – if you needed one – of just how eccentric we Brits can be…
Anyway, after that tasty digression, back to the subject in hand (as it were). According to my anklebiters, all adults have … well … big bottoms that wobble when they run. In fact, this is a constant topic of conversation between the two kids as they speculate on the sheer jelly-like tremblings of the human adult backside.
Their conclusion? Kids don’t have jelly bottoms because they are always running, skipping, jumping and otherwise frolicking outside or inside like speeded kanagaroos. Adults, on the other hand, sit around in front of computers and TVs all day and evening – hence, the jiggly buttocks.

When my little boy goes to bed at night, he usually pats my bottom and says affectionately, “My squidgy!”
Mmm… Do you think he’s trying to tell me something?
