Alexander was reading comics on the sofa and asked me, “Mom, what is SCI-fall-us?”
“I don’t know honey, do you want to show me the word, maybe you’re not pronouncing it right?”
He brought me his Simpson’s Comic Book, and there it was plain as day SYPHILIS.
“You pronounce it syphilis and it’s a disease your penis gets, but it only happens to adults.” I said.
“Oh, that is funny.” and then he returned to the sofa and continued reading.
