Leila is intrigued by the bad words that are bleeped on t.v. and tries to guess what they are.
"I know one of them is 'stupid' and I think the other one is 'hate'," she hazards. "Is that what they are saying?"
I, of course, refuse to tell her.
At some point I may have to, so she doesn't end up doing what I did in third grade. We were in Canada for the year, and I was very confused at the behavior of the other kids. On the way home from school a girl started saying a very bad word to me, so I just said it back to her, unaware that I was telling her to copulate.
Luckily she didn't beat me up.
