[child|funny] Conversations with my daughter

[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.
