Asexual

Me:  <enjoying a nice, hot, peaceful shower>

Emily, pushing open the bathroom door and standing right outside the shower: “Mom, what’s ‘asexual’ mean?”

Me, quietly:  “I think you’re too young yet to know.”

Emily:  “Huh?”

Me:  “What’s the context?”

Emily:  “It’s in my science book.  See?”

Me, pushing open the shower door to verify said science book:  “Oh.  In that case I think it means neither male nor female.” <close shower door>

Emily:  “My Weyand pronounces it ‘ass-sexual’.  I couldn’t stop laughing every time he said it in class.”

Me:  “Oh brother.”
