(The Kid and I are putting away groceries and she is humming to herself when all of a sudden she stops and stares at me, stricken.)
The Kid: Oh no.
The Kid: I just realized....
The Kid: The poem...by Ogden Nash...I just realized what it was about...
Me: What poem?
The Kid: Candy is dandy / but liquor is quicker.
(She stares at me)
The Kid: Mom.
Me: Yep. Wasn't the world cool back when men thought date rape was funny?
The Kid: But...Odgen Nash?
Me: Here. Put the apples away.
