Never a Dull Moment
So I was driving my daughter home from dance class this past week and she piped up from the back seat and said "Mommy, what's a virgin?" I almost wrecked the car. This is not something that should be coming out of an eight and a half year olds mouth. I of course was completely taken off guard. I looked at the radio and thought... what song is playing?...and a million other things flew through my mind in a nano second. Not wanting to lie to her I told her reluctantly that it's someone who has not had sex before. Duh!! Why did I not say it is a non-alcoholic drink or even its someone who hasn't done 'something' before. Anyway, she then proceeded to say "well then that's inappropriate!" Huh? I get that this is not a normal conversation but, I was really confused. I then said "honey, what do you mean?" and then I got this....."That van said Iowa Virgin's Home on the side of it!" Trying really hard not to laugh, I said to her, "Honey, are you sure it didn't say Iowa Veterans Home?" Her response was "yeah, I bet it did...." Ah....never a dull moment with this one.... I love you Reese's Pieces!
