Definition #1, I think

In the midst of taking a social history on an elderly male:

Patient: ...and my son Boo-Boo lives just around the corner and comes to see how we are doing at least every other day.

Me: Your son is named Boo-Boo?

(Quick definition: #1. A stupid or embarrassing mistake; a blunder or #2. A slight physical injury, such as a scratch)

Patient: My wife and I planned to have two children, but we had three and he's the youngest, so it's always been his nick name.

Me: Wow, that's a little harsh but funny! How old is he now?

Patient: He just turned 60.
