This year, the girl is in sixth grade which means this semester, she’s in a class called Family Life. Family Life is, apparently, this year’s public school euphemism for Sex Ed. She’s definitely paying attention in class; after seeing a Viagra commercial on TV and the disclaimer at the end about seeking medical attention, she said, loudly, “I KNOW WHAT THAT IS NOW!”
Unbridled joy on my end. Could we just quit with the erectile dysfunction ads during prime time, please?
She begged me to share this joke with you: If a quiz is a quizzical, what is a test?
Hahahaha. Sixth grade humor abounds at our house.
I said, “So, are you learning anything interesting in Family Life? Anything you didn’t already know?”
She said, “We got a very technical description of sex and I thought, oh man, my mom and dad do that, and I just shuddered, because NO ONE wants to think that.”
I understand. I really do. (Shudder).
