I grabbed a precious hour of sewing time today that was soon invaded by my daughter. She came bouncing into my craft room with a new joke to tell me.
“Hey Mom,” my 11 year old daughter said. “I’ve got a new joke! What’s long and hard and has semen in it.”
And my smile froze as my eyes got big.
And with all of my self control I asked, “(gulp) What honey?”
“A coffin! Get it? It’s long and hard and has dead guys who go fishing in the sea in it.”
“Uhh...where did you hear that one?” I said with a smile plastered on my face.
“I don’t remember but isn’t it funny?”
My first thought was, “I love that she is so completely innocent.”
The words out of my mouth were…”Remember that talk we had about where babies come from….?”
