Yesterday M had a playdate with a friend. As both boys are in the same class, they get the same spelling words.
Before the playdate was about to end, I decided to quiz them both on their spelling words. The words were Canadian provinces and their capitals.
So it went something like this...
British Columbia - boys get busy writing on their papers
Victoria - tongues hanging out in concentration
Ottawa, Ontario, Edmonton, Alberta, and so on we went.
Saskatchewan - okay, ready for the next word, I ask?
Regina - ....sniggers and snorts coming from my child
They say the word again and "look" at each other and burst out laughing.
V-Regina blurts out my kid.
That's a girl part, ahahaha, hee hee, V-Regina...!
Okay funny, haha. Yes, Regina sounds like Vagina. And I'm sure every resident of Regina has heard it before three times over.
I can just imagine the spelling test today at school and all the boys erupting in giggles when the teacher says Regina...
