Talking About Tubes Tied Will Leave You Tongue-Tied

| Learning | June 17, 2013

(I’m a female camp counselor. It is my fifth and sixth grade camp’s pool time and I’m shooting hoops with some kids in the water when one a boy swims up and starts up a conversation.)

Boy: “Did you know that you could die of a hysterectomy?”

(I freeze with the basketball in my hands, wondering if he knew what he was talking about.)

Me: “Why? Were you thinking of getting one?”

Boy: “What? No!”

Me: “So…”

Boy: “You know, on second thought, that’s not a very good conversation starter.”
