Tags:child, funny
[info]the_child: "When you were a little kid, did you look up perverted things on the computer?"
[info]jaylake: "We didn't have computers back then. I had to look up perverted things in books."
[info]the_child: "Like butt?"

And then:

[info]the_child: "Do you know pickup lines?"
[info]jaylake: "Uh, yes."
[info]the_child: "Have you ever used a pickup line on a girl?"
[info]jaylake: "No, not really." :: laughs :: "Where did you learn about pickup lines?"
[info]the_child: "[teacherNameRedacted]. [friendNameRedacted] brought it up, and he had to explain it. You know, 'You look like a parking ticket, because you have FINE written all over you.'"
[info]jaylake: :: laughs again ::
[info]the_child: "Why is that funny? I don't get it."

Ah, parenthood.

Just be sure to warn your daughter about the seductive power of puns.

I laughed because it was so deeply stupid. Which I explained to her.

You know, when [Bad username: the child] asks these questions you could always refer her to Avocado, who is just old enough to explain these things and to agree about the weirdness of adults.

You totally need to introduce the child to http://www.spitfiregrrrl.com/ - in a couple of years.
She does erotic poetry AND feminist analysis of pickup artistry.
