One came on the other day when I was watching TV with 14-year-old K. Suddenly the room was flooded with phrases like prostate cancer, impotence, and erectile dysfunction. I silently prayed that K wasn't paying attention.
"What's a prostate?"
My eyes widened. I maybe even gasped.
"Well, it's a gland that only guys have because it's inside them in their... in their..." I opted for gestures instead of words.
Now it was K's turn for the wide-eyed gasp. Followed by a squeal and some "I wish I didn't know that" groans.
But I got off easy.
She could've asked me what erectile dysfunction is.
