Scene: Saturday evening in my home, my husband had let Lael watch and episode of King of The Hill ( I DID NOT APPROVE) and it had went off. If any of you have ever watched Cartoon Network "after hours" there is a little sumin' sumin' called Adult Swim. Yeah, you get the point. So King of the Hill went off and this is what happened......
Me: "Lael, give me the remote so I can change the channel."
Lael: "Why mommy, does this show have blood in it, I will cover my eyes."
Me: "No, it just has words bad words in it."
Lael: "Well Spongebob has bad words in it and you let me watch it."
Me: "Yes, well Spongebob has words I don't like but that show has bad words I don't even want you to hear."
Lael: "Oh you so Spongebob says words like the "S" word and the "D" word."
Me: "What are those words?"
Lael: "You know, Stupid and Dumb."
Me: "Yes, those are not good words to use, do you know any other bad words you shouldn't use?"
Lael: "Yeah, I don't say Fat, or Ugly, those are mean. Also the "F" word."
Ok, this is where the conversation took a turn for the worse. I didn't know what she thought the "F" word was. I just knew for sure that when she said the "S" word she would say "Shit" but no, "Stupid" was her word of choice.
Me: "Oh, what's the "F" word?"
At this point I gasped, covered my mouth with both hands and did my best to cover up my giggles. Mature. I know.
Me: "Lael where did you hear that?"
Lael: "Some of the big kids on the bus say: What the fuck is going on?"
Yes, I died a little. Well ok, a lot. She know not to use those words.
Thanks Cartoon Network, you made my Saturday a whole fucking lot better.
