(It is raining in so it is necessary to have all the students remain indoors for recess. I’m sitting with some of my third graders.)

Student #1: “Did you say any bad words when you were little?”

Me: *trying to hedge around the topic* “I didn’t know many bad words when I was little.”

Student #2: “Yeah. They hadn’t invented most bad words back then anyway!”
