Unprepared, for Ella’s questions, I hem and haw and stall. I finally say "it's like being happy. Ya know, just...um….feeling happy". Ok. Let's ponder this. If she goes to school and replaces happy with "boner" like say, in gym class when she's having fun and says "hey guys! I am having a boner" - I will kill myself. Seriously die.
“Really Mom? I don’t think that is what it is. I know it’s when a penis gets hard.” Well, gee thanks for making this hard for me, Ella. Where is Zac Effron when I need him?
OK – that sounds bad. I meant for some vanilla musical number! You must be the type that learned about boners earlier than most if you thought I meant anything else. And you must have known all of the words to “Grease Lightening.” Own it people, just own it. And go high-five your super groovy parents.
