Some Days, I Wonder About This Job.

I walked into work this morning: first class, year six. Right. Fine. Wake up. I walk through the door and the first thing, the first fucking thing, said to me is by a girl, who is eleven, and she says, "Sir! I know what a Sixty-Nine is! My brother told me! I also know what a Tea Bag is! Do you know?"

"A Tea Bag?"

"It's when a girl sucks on a guy's balls!"

"Oh. They have a name for that now. How nice." Then, as an after thought, "It doesn't have to be a girl."

Naturally, after that calmed down, the rest of the class wanted to know what a Sixty-Nine was. So I told them to write the number, on its side. The circles are heads, I added. It was apparently that kind of day. Rest assured, your children are learning with me.

At least you didn't go into explaining collective tea bagging when your pal passed out at a party. So see, you have preserved your moral integrity by holding something back.

I think I had a very sheltered upbringing, at 11 I was just getting into the "perhaps boys aren't so yucky after all" phase.

I'm stunned.

if they ever tell you about a "Senor Sanchez," then you'll know you're in over your head.

Senor
It'll have to be on email, man. It's too filthy. This friend of mine, who hooked for a while in NYC, told me what it was. I'd never heard of it either. So send me an email.
