So my 16 year old daughter, Maybelline, is doing homework for her pre-AP English class, reading Grapes of Wrath. She looks over and asks, "Mom, what does c-e-l-i-b-a-t-e mean?" Seriously? Someone should not be taking pre-AP English. And someone should not be having to explain to her 16 year old the meaning of celibate.
She looks down at the notebook she's using to take notes of her reading and starts erasing.
Until I write again ...
With all the sex-ed they have in schools, you'd think that would be a word they'd introduce at some point.
I'm choking on my biscotti, LMAO!
I was about her age when a Sunday School teacher told us to look through the bible and find any words that we didn't know what they meant and they would help us create a glossary. I was so........so naive. I raise my hard...."Harlot, I don't know what harlot means." You could have heard a pin drop.
Chuckling and cringing with you.
And you wonder why those teenagers don't talk to their parents. LOL
Karen: LOL!!! Did your teacher define harlot for you?
GAH! Pre AP? Never heard of that...but Celibate is another name for Maybelline. Right?
Are you sure she didn't mean celebrate?
Ok we teach them every kind of angle about sex and skip this? Well thank God she asked you. Considering there are more than 38 kinds of STD's out there now many of them not curable- and also prevent having children-- Id' say it;s the best question to come up for awhile!
Since I've been in trouble lately for pretty much this very thing, I think I should tell you to pass on that. Big. Time.
Well, I'm not sure my 19 old knows either... maybe I should go ask her...?
