Quick Sammy Story

Last week on my way home from work, I was listening to the radio and they were talking about the Gloucester, Mass teen "pregnancy pact."

Of course, I got upset and sad at this. So I see Sammy when I get in the house and I think, "teaching opportunity..."

I relay the story, to her shock and dismay (Her reaction: "Pardon my language, but - damn!") and told her that the girls were not doing this out of love: [reports were] that one young girl had sex with a homeless man in order to get pregnant. We really didn't discuss any more about that.

So the next day, we were watching TV and some dating commercial comes on. Some guy was going on about how his mom had recommended this site and blah, blah, blah. I'm really not paying attention to what's on. From the couch, Sammy pipes up with: "Well, it's better than Doing It with a hobo."

eHarmony, I think we have a new tagline for you.

I know, the stuff she comes up with are beyond funny. It's hard to believe she's only 11.

She could totally fit in at my workplace. Actually, she'd probably think we are immature because we try to see how much work we can get done using a Wii controller and run toy tanks through a course built of technical texts.

Btw, how many of you buy that there really was no pact?
