Things I overheard #11

This is a very special edition of Things I Overheard. People, your children are perverted. The days of innocent and pure minds are long gone.

I am sitting at Starbucks, killing some time before my appointment with my hair stylist. There are two elementary school-aged girls sitting behind me; no older than 10, I'd say. One of the girls is asking the other riddles -- "I bark. I am man's best friend. What am I?"

But one of the riddles rocked me to my core.

"What pops easily?"

Being the dirty boy I am, I immediately thought the following: Virginity *chuckle*

Without missing a beat, however, the girl quickly answered:

"A cherry."

The two girls start giggling.

"You didn't let me finish... *giggle*... It's filled with helium."

"Oh. A Balloon." *giggle*

My jaw hit the table. I was in a state of shock. Did I actually just hear a little girl make a dirty joke?

What the hell are parents letting their kids do these days!? What kind of exposure are they getting that their minds would wander to the sexual?

I shudder to think how any child of mine would turn out! My poor, poor imaginary offspring.

  1. See... and I must have the same dirty minds, because I would have thought the same thing!!

    But I enjoyed the one girls answer even better than virginity.

    a cherry!

    You go, girl!

  2. HAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh no, there's no future left for mankind.

    (I also concur with Badass Geek: it's all the fault of the Interwebs.)

  3. So true, amandahugandkiss!

    I weep for the future. On the plus side, it means I don't have to censor myself in front of kids since they are already corrupt.

  4. lol. I mean amandaBLOGandkiss.
