A commercial for The Simpsons came on last night. Maxine turned to me and said, "Mom, I like The Simpsons ... except they use bad words."
"What words are those?" I asked.
"They say the s-word."
Now, I haven't kept up much on Simpsons viewing lately, but I was pretty sure they haven't used the S-word.
"They do?" I asked.
"Yup," she was very sure of herself.
So I went out on a limb and asked her to tell me the s-word. I assured her that she would not get in trouble for saying it.
Much to my relief, she said, "OK. They say 'stupid.'"
