Sometimes I tease Scott about being a sheltered homeschooler.
Yeah, I know. I was homeschooled myself. For eight years, anyway. Still, you'd be surprised what you can pick up between kindergarten and third grade. Whatever the reason, there have been several times in the last couple of years when I've casually mentioned something that shocked and appalled Scott because he had never heard of it before.
Today's violation of Scott's innocence: Earrings on babies. I copy-pasted into our Skype conversation a funny, sarcastic comment I read on a blog, which said that unless you have a seriously ugly baby this woman didn't see why you needed earrings to make the baby "cuter."
The conversation proceeded thus:
[8:16:59 PM] Vagus Adversor: Some people pierce their babies' ears?!
[8:17:06 PM] Vagus Adversor: That's cruel and unusual.
[8:17:06 PM] Megan: Yes.
[8:17:11 PM] Megan: You don't get out much, do you?
[8:17:19 PM] Vagus Adversor: Ok, it's cruel then.
