Things on Thursday: Basketball Goal

Two weekends ago, we bought a basketball goal. The large expanse of concrete outside our side-entry garage is perfect for basketball, and all three of my boys love shootin' hoops!

Today's photos were taken by George.

Which reminds me of a funny story about basketball and whores.

Nick and George were playing HORSE at the basketball court in our old neighborhood a couple of years ago. When they got to H-O-R, Nick asked George, "What is a whore?" George dodged the question and told Nick to ask me.

A while later at the dinner table, George announced that Nick had a question for me. Nick lit up and eagerly asked, "Mom, what's a whore?"

I replied, without hesitation or blushing,  "A woman who has sex for money."

"Wow," George said. "You didn't even hesitate."

"No. No, I didn't," I replied smugly.

Sometimes, it's fun being a grown-up.


  1. Haha! Well done!

    The new basketball hoop looks great!

  2. Oh, my goodness.....Susan, you crack me up! :)

  3. Good for you - I always think that kids will respect the fact that they can get a straight answer from you. I try to do the same and sometimes, it's just too funny!


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
