So, after Easter dinner, I was cleaning up in the kitchen, my mom was hanging out with me, the beau was playing X-Box on the boy was on the computer, watching his gamer videos on YouTube. He's become quite addicted to these videos - walk-throughs of difficult levels, hints, and the like. Anyway, it's all quite near-normal when the boy says this:
"Mom, what's a cunt?"
Me: O.O!!!!!!!! Wha...wha...what did you say?
The boy: C-U-N-T - what does "cunt" mean?
Me: Wha..- why are you ask...- where did you see THAT??
The boy: *suddenly realizing this is probably a swear word* um...
The beau: *peeks over his shoulder at the screen* Someone put it in a comment on this video he's watching.
The boy: ummmm...
Me: It's a very rude swear word. One you shouldn't use. Ever. *thinking: especially not at school, ffs*
The boy: I'm sorry! I didn't know!
Me: I know, I'm not mad at you for asking. I'm just letting you know, it's not a word you should be using.
The boy: Okay...but...um...
Me: It refers to a certain female body part.
The boy: Oh. Oh. Okay.
To her eternal credit, Grandma did not flip out at hearing her darling boy use such vulgarities, because Grandma's cool like that. But still. Face, meet palm. Palm, this is face.
This happy family moment brought to you by the internet. Being a terrible influence since the late 1990's!
