Getting Goosebumps For Real

| Related | April 14, 2014

(My third grader is telling her friend about the Goosebumps series books she’s reading.)

Daughter: “It’s called The Whore at Camp Jellyjam.”

Me: “What!?”

Daughter:The Whore at Camp Jellyjam.”

Me: “No, wait. The whore?”

Daughter: “Yes, whore.”

Me: “Umm, can you spell it?”

Daughter: “J-E-L-L…”

Me: “No, spell whore.”

Daughter: “H-O-R-R-O-R.”

Me: “Oh!”

(I breathed a sigh of relief, and followed with a pronunciation lecture.)
