Now That We’re All Together Again

Light Princess: Well, I'm finished with Birth Control Middle School.

Pure Luck (out of earshot): Let's hope she doesn't go to Teen Pregnancy High School.


On the last day of middle school, I took the opportunity to talk to the Wonderful Principal of Renowned Middle School, relating the story that a friend in a faraway state heard him in a local radio interview and admired his handling of the questions.

"Yes," he said, "that interviewer asked me, 'Do you really teach sodomy?'"

(You'll forgive me if I colored a bit, at least on the inside, when the Principal discussed sodomy with me.)

He went on, "I told him, if the kids ask, we teach about it. Then I pointed out to him that we have sex education and they don't and that we have a much lower teen pregnancy rate."

Well, that's all right, then.

  1. I wish they taught sodomy at my daughter’s high school… jarred me to see a 9 month pregnant girl be inducted into the National Honor Society…10-20% of the girls in her school are or have been pregnant.

  2. Oh my, what an interesting conversation! But best to be clear about the things they want to know!

    Principal: game, set, match! (that means something in sports lingo, I hope it means what I want to say!)
