Not Quite Off Topic
Today's post is a little more risqué than I normally do, but I just couldn't resist...
I got called to cover a health class for summer school. Four hours with the same group. They all missed taking health during the school year, so they're making it up now. (They all just finished 9th grade.)
The topic of the day was HIV/AIDS. They were to create a PowerPoint presentation outlining the topic as if they were going to present this to a 5th grade class.
While meandering about the room, I heard two boys discussing their project. One mangled a term, so I gently corrected him. "Oral-genital."
Him: "What's that?"
Other boy: "A blow job."
I nodded a confirmation.
First boy: "What's a blow job?"
Probably the only time such a question would actually be on-topic.
(No, I didn't explain. I could have. Maybe I should have. But I didn't feel it was my place to go into it right then.)
