As my son is studying the solar system this week, it reminded me of a conversation he had with my MIL and me a few months ago.
Stinky: "Mommy, are you a virgin?"
Me: "Pardon me?"
Stinky: "Are you a virgin?"
Me: "Where did you hear that word?"
Stinky: "From Oma."
Me: [blank stare]
Oma: "You're a virgin."
Me: [bigger blank stare while thinking just where the hell is this going]
Oma: "You know, DH and Blinky are Leos and you're a Virgin."
Me: As understanding kicks in, "Do you mean Virgo?"
Oma: "Yes, Virgo!"
English is not my MIL's first language.
Me: "Stinky, please don't go to school saying that word. Oma meant Virgo.
Yes, my sign is Virgo."
Stinky: "Well what's a virgin?"
Me: [face palm]
