The Ladies' Man

Today at dismissal, two of my boys were fighting. They are best friends, so it was really "Just play fighting, Ms. Woes!" Of course I had to find out what they were fighting over, so I asked them why they felt the need to repeatedly smack each other upside the head.

Ms. Woes: Why do you feel the need to repeatedly smack each other upside the head?

Boy 1: He called me a ladies' man!

Gym teacher standing nearby: coughs and turns away to hide his laughing.

Ms. Woes: Do you know what a ladies' man is?

Boy 1: No.

Boy 2: No.

Ms. Woes: You don't even know what you are fighting over! Just shake hands and stop hitting each other over nonsense.

Boy 1 and Boy 2: shake hands and make friends again.

Nosy Loudmouth Second Grader standing nearby: A ladies' man is a boy who all the girls like and want to kiss!

Boy 1 and Boy 2: scream out EWWWWWWW! and commence smacking each other upside the head as the Gym Teacher and I collapse in giggles.

Maybe he meant to call him a Lady Man, which is entirely different.

We had children yesterday (5th graders) asking what "free-balling" was! EEK - what is the world coming to?

Let's hope they never figure out what the word pimp means.
