A few nights ago the girls and I were watching a tv show together. I can't remember now what the scene was but one character says to another one, "He stays for the sex." B3 (the 12 year old) says, "The snacks? That's stupid."
I couldn't help but laugh and so did her big sister. She didn't understand so I told her what they had really said. Didn't seem to make much difference in the story line to her. And whether it be snacks or sex, it's all stupid isn't it? Makes me think they could re-write most of the tv scripts and the stories would still be worth watching or heck, probably even better.
I love the innocence of youth.
P.S. Yes, I know that what the character said sounds completely inappropriate for a 12 year old to be seeing/hearing. And yes, it probably was but please don't holler at me.
