Let's take teenagers for example. My children are fascinated with them. GIRL idolizes our babysitters, and BOY thinks teenagers have it made...because he imagines they have unlimited access and time for devices and freedom to use BAD WORDS...
Trip to the bookstore:
Bookseller: What kind of books are you looking for?
BOY: Well, you know, I'm almost a teenager.
Bookseller: Really...? How old are you?
BOY: 9 1/2.
Conversation at home:
GIRL: Mommy, do teenagers have recess?
JCK: Well, yes...they have a break during lunch.
GIRL: What do they do during recess?
JCK: They mostly hang out with their friends, eat, study...things like that.
GIRL: They don't play at all?
JCK: Not really...not in the same way you do.
GIRL: That's really lame.
GIRL: Mommy, what's a thong?
JCK: A thong?[!!!cough...cough??!!]
GIRL: Yes, a mom called her daughter's flip-flops...thongs, and some other girls started laughing and saying thongs are underwear?
JCK: Well...yes, that is true.
GIRL: It's underwear?
JCK: Well, you know how flip-flops have a section that goes between your big toe and the next toe?
JCK: Well, a thong is a kind of women's underwear that covers the front of you and has a section that goes between your butt.
GIRL: That is disgusting.
JCK figures thinking about how lame teenagers are will last about... 24 hours in BOY's mind. GIRL? Now, she's willing to take her time to get there...
