On the way to school this morning I asked Big Kid, "So, any girls in your class have girlfriend potential?" thinking he'd get mad at me for teasing him.
"Well....Sally's hot," he answered matter-of-factly, after a moment of consideration.
"Uh, hot?" I asked, feeling uncomfortable.
"Yeah, you know, she looks good and stuff."
"So, she's pretty?"
"Yep, she's lookin' pretty hot."
It's hard to pinpoint what sounds so inappropriate about describing a first grader as "hot", even if it's another first grader doing it. We were pulling up to the school and I wasn't in the mood to end our morning arguing semantics, so I said that she sounded nice and allowed Sally to continue being hot to Big Kid.
