One More Reason To Avoid Morning Radio

This morning one of the djs decided to discuss how she wants to take pole dancing lessons. And went into how pole dancing is not stripping. But how she has always been fascinated by strippers and blah blah blah strippers and yadda yadda yadda strippers. And before I could change the station, Adam said, "Mom, what's a stripper?" "Umm, it's not something you need to know about today," I hedged. "But mom, what is a stripper?" I thought for a second about telling him, but how do you describe a stripper to a six year old. It probably would have been okay because he would have thought it was extremely gross. But I decided to avoid it for now and told him to change the subject...to something easier to explain, like why the sky's blue or how to perform brain surgery.

I've had problems similar to this while driving around with kids in the car. One memorable one was the discussion on the radio of masterbation. *sigh* C'mon people!

Yeah, it's amazing how that sense of hearing works. The same ears that can't hear you telling them to clean their room or get ready for bed can pick up words like "cookie" and "stripper" from fifty yards.

I think I would have changed the subject, too. I already explained sex; I'm not sure I'm ready to go into all the stuff the world does with it.

I suppose you could have said that a stripper is a dancer who changes clothes a lot. Would that work?
