So, today, Ryan came home from school after being on a school trip to a local butterfly farm. They also have meerkats. He burst through the door and after I asked if he'd had a nice time, if he'd seen the meerkats, he sat down and announced
'I know what a boner is.'
I looked at Mr G and he at me. Looks of abject horror on our faces.
Ryan - There's this boy called 'shall remain unnamed' and when the meerkat came out, he had a boner.
Me - The meerkat?
Ryan - No, 'shall remain unnamed' did.
Me - Oh my God. Poor boy. Something like this could haunt him his whole school life. He'll be known as Meerkat Boner Boy or something. Were people taking the mick out of him?
Ryan - Yep.
Me - I hope you weren't. Poor boy.
Ryan - I was singing Michael Jackson parodies *bursts into song* 'Cos this is Bonerrrrrr, Boner night'. Oh and 'Do you want to have a Boner? It doesn't have to be a Boner' from Frozen.
Me - Ryan!
Mr G - *sweating from trying not to laugh*
Caitlin - *drops to the floor*
Me - You make sure you apologise to that boy tomorrow.
