The Next Dr. Ruth?

Mr. T thinks he’s in the know now that we’ve had ‘the talk’. The first thing he said to Morrigan when we arrived for the wedding weekend was, “So. Are you and Mo’s Beau going to have a baby?”

Didn’t that equate to, “So. Are you and Mo’s Beau going to have sex?”

She kind of laughed, a bit horrified and said they were going to wait awhile and Mo’s Beau said something about storks or having one on order.


Oh and at Take Your Child to Work Day, Mr. Magoo has a picture of meerkats on his cube. (Each meerkat is labeled with someone’s name. Typical office humor.)

Mr. T looked at them and said, “He has a picture of meerkats. I’ve watched Meerkat Manor on animal planet.” *pause* He leaned over to me and said quietly, as if telling me a secret, ‘I’ve seen them… mate.”


Tonight I was walking through the family room and he was watching TV. I overheard something along the lines of (the stats may be a bit off), ‘Statistically, 48% look at the chest where a mere 20% look at the butt.”


I stopped in my tracks, walked back into the dark room where my 10 year old son was sprawled out on the couch and said, “WHAT are YOU watching?”

He looked up at me innocently and said, “Discovery Channel, Mom.”

I turned to the TV and there were monkeys. Big monkeys. With Big Red Butts.


“What were they talking about?”, I inquired.

He said, “Oh, well, the other type of monkeys are almost always attracted to chests, but this monkey… they only like butts.”

I nearly choked. I felt so… dirty.

When Morrigan said they were going to wait a while, didn't that translate (into boy-speak) as waiting to have sex? Because, you know, who would to that just because they *want* to?

Heh. I think that is EXACTLY what it translated into. Mo was horrified. She was at my side seconds later with big huge wide eyes... I could not quit laughing.

At least those ol monkeys are attracted. Life would be really sad without cute little monkeys.

PT and T1G- I am expecting my brother to chime in and say the same thing now. Sheesh!

Mockinbird... they were BIG monkeys! BIG. I'm not sure cute really was an adjective. Gah!

So the next time someone says that something is more fun than a barrel of monkeys, you may just wanna ask what KIND of monkeys.
