I must be getting old.
While my kids were getting ready for school, my wife reminded them to not forget their gym clothes for school. My 11 year-old son replied, "I don't need them. I have Health, remember?" Then he went downstairs.
I walked into the bedroom and looked at my wife.
"Health?", I asked.
"Yeh," she replied, "Phys Ed."
Now, when I was in school, Phys Ed was "gym". Running around. Sports. Stuff like that.
So I said, "Hmm.. wouldn't it make more sense to teach them about Phys Ed before they the physical part?"
She smiled at me and said, "No... 'PHYS ED'."
Then it hit me.
Why the hell do they call it HEALTH or PHYS ED? We called that SEX ED when I was in school. because that's what it was about. Sex.
Then it hit me again.
He's only 11 years-old!
Good god. Is it THAT time already?
I'm not ready for this shit.
