Sunday Memories - From That Moment On The World Was Different

B. told us. Of course none of us believed her. But she insisted. She had it on good authority and could even prove it to us.

So we all trooped off to the Children's Section of the Seward Park Library on East Broadway where the librarian nodded gravely at B.'s request and then guided us to a little bookcase we had never really paid attention to before. And there she pulled out a big enough picture book with big enough pictures called How Babies Are Made.

The sudden information that not only did our fathers have one of those but that they did that with our mothers was numbingly shocking.

That is until we discovered dirty jokes.

ha! great zinger!

I was told that babies came from the uterus, which is true but left the male completely out of the picture. Maybe my mother didn't want me to date?

LOLOL! Oh our poor fathers. Relegated to Ken like anatomy.

If Bush didn't take it off the shelves because none of the animals were married, it should still be there!
