Evan is the kitchen counter doing homework tonight. Paul is washing dishes and I am sitting nearby...
Evan: Do you know some words that start with circum?
Paul looks at me and smirks
Me: Hey Evan, do you know what circumcise means?
Evan: No... I have to write down the definitions. I'll do that in a minute.
I start giggling like I'm in 6th grade.
Paul: Evan, don't put down circumcise.
Paul: Just don't.
Evan: What does it mean?
Paul: It means to remove the foreskin from a penis.
I burst out laughing.
Evan: Oh my God. Owww! Why did you tell me that mom?
Me: Dad took the best circum word... circumference. Circumcise is the second best circum word.
Evan: Okay. I am crossing off circumcise. Wow mom.
Evan: What does circumference mean?
Me: It's the circle around the foreskin of a penis that you cut off when you circumcise someone.
Paul starts laughing.
Me: I'm sorry.
A few moments later...
Evan: Okay, now I need some words that begin with fore..
Evan: Okay... forlorn
Evan: What is foreplay?
Me: I'm kidding, don't put down foreplay.
Evan: What does it mean!
Evan: Dad. What is foreplay?
Paul: Don't put that down.
Me: Okay, okay...
Evan: Okay... how about hemi.
I burst out laughing again.
Paul: What is so funny about hemi?
Me: I have no clue!
