Prodigy

On the van, waiting to pull into the line of traffic leaving Jackson Street:

4th Grade Boy: Ms. Becky! She said the ‘C’ word!

Me: (without really thinking about it): What’s the ‘C’ word?”

1st Grade Girl: ‘CRAP!’

Me: Thank you. (To everyone) Let’s not say ‘crap.’

1st GG: You’re welcome. I know a LOT of them.

Me: Oh.

1st GG: My mom says cuss words all the time, so I get to learn them early.
