This conversation was actually parlayed to me via my cousin. It was a great discussion with her 10 year old son. She is a hard worker and actually has three jobs. One of the jobs is cleaning places occasionally. Her son was helping her as she cleaned a bathroom.
Cousin: “Oh, wait. There is one more trash can I need to get. It is for the feminine products.”
Son: “Like pads.”
Cousin: “Yeah, pads and tampons.”
Son: “What are tampons?”
Cousin: “Well, kind of the same thing but you insert them.”
Son: “Up there?”
Son: “Won’t that make them pregnant?”
Cousin: “No. Not that.”
Son: “Well, where do they stick them? Not up their butt?”
Cousin: “No, honey, not the butt. We’ll discuss this later.”
OMG!! We were both laughing so hard. It reminds me of the time my sister drove all the way to OK where I was living on the Indian Reservation. She showed up, dropped off my nephew while her and my niece ran to the store.
Sister: “Nephew has some questions for you.”
Me: “Umm. Ok.” (I so should’ve known something was up.) “What’s up little man?”
Nephew: “Mom said you would explain wet dreams to me.”
Me: (I know that b*tch is laughing manically as she speeds away.)
I’m actually grateful that I got all the hard questions with my niece and nephew. It really helped bond us together. I just wish my sister would’ve given me more notice so I could plan. I think she enjoyed dropping the big ones on me as often as she could. We have the same sick sense of humor. I laughed just as hard as she did when we reminisced later. Good times.
