On Sunday we spent the afternoon with two of my former students and current friends, Kevin and Christina. It’s always fun to watch our kids interacting with adults, and this time was no different. After lunch, Ben took Christina up to his room to show her his latest Lego creation. He was explaining to her some of the finer points of building cranes, when he paused and looked at her with a very serious look on his face.
“I don’t mean to be critical,” he said, “but I just farted.”
Christina could barely contain her laughter.
We’re not sure where he picked up that expression, but we think he meant to say “crude.”
