Tales From The First Grade

“Mom, somebody kissed someutherbody in school, today,” my seven-year-old said as he closed the car door.

“Oh, really?”  I said, turning to look at him.  “That’s not good.” 

“No it isn’t,”  he said emphatically.

“Kids in your class?” I asked.

“M-hm,” he replied.

“Did you see it happen?”  I pulled out of my parking place.

“No, they were in the tunnel slide.”

“Oh.”  I said glancing in the rearview mirror.

“No one should be kissing anybody else in school,” I said, hoping he would agree.

“Yeah, I know.  It’s gross… blehk!  And its DAAN-gerous,” he said in a grave voice, “

I stifled a laugh and made eye-contact in the mirror.  “Yes it is,”  I agreed.
