We recently got a letter from the middle school, alerting us to the fact that the 8th grade will soon be starting the human sexuality portion of the health class.
M: Oh, I remember when we had that program in health. Is Mr. ______ still teaching it?
S: [reluctant to discuss this] Yeah...
M: Don't worry, it's not that bad.
S: [dubious] Really?...
M: Yeah, I'm not gonna lie, I kind of liked sex ed. There was a lot of role playing.
Me: [bursting out laughing] I think you'd better clarify that, Maddy.
. . .
Of course we established that she meant there were lots of roleplaying exercises about saying no and making choices and that sort of thing. But we still have a good laugh about it.
