My daughter is now 8. I kind of figured that she knew all the main bad words that are out there. I knew them all when I was 6. Of course, I hung out with a bad sort of kid. You know the type. The ones that have older siblings.
The other day I asked my daughter if she knew what dirty words were. She blushed and admitted that she knew the F-word, the S-word, and the H-word. I was shocked! I didn't even know what the H-word was. Did my daughter know curse words that I didn't? Am I so old that I'm not hip to what's bad?
I asked my daughter what the H-word was. "It's really bad," she responded. It's "hate." So what's the F and S words? It turns out they're fart and stupid! She apparently still doesn't know what curse words are yet. And she still believes in the tooth fairy. Go figure.
Then she told me that she wanted to sing Cee Lo Green's song for the school talent show audition. But she said that every version is looked for is loaded with bad words.
My heart stopped. Did she stumble upon the real lyrics to the song? It turns out she's talking about the cleaned-up radio version. Apparently it has "hate" throughout it.
I guess I can breath again!
