"Everything Sex," he said.
"Everything Sex," he repeated, looking annoyed.
Now, granted, I don't monitor his TV viewing much. I mean, how? If I banned something on the TV, he'd watch it on his laptop in his room without my knowing, if he really wanted to. And in another 6 months, at college? He'll be able to watch whatever the heck he wants.
|Watch at your own risk|
So, yeah, I adhere more to the BE AWARE philosophy - that is, know what he's watching so we can discuss it. Still, Everything Sex? Looked to me as if a serious talk was now necessary.
"So, uh, what's that about?" I asked, not really wanting to know.
"It's a 90s show about high schoolers," Brian said, looking annoyed at the parental interrogation.
I took a deep breath. "Look, hon, you DO know that high schoolers aren't really having much sex, don't you? Or if they are, they probably shouldn't be?"
"What?" said Brian, looking confused.
"I mean, a show about high school sex definitely isn't realistic," I continued. Gosh darn it, why can't I sound more intelligent when I talk to the kids about these things?
"WHAT are you talking about?" asked Brian, staring at me as if I had 2 heads.
"What are YOU talking about?" I said. "Isn't the show called Everything Sex?"
Brian smiled. "Everything Sucks," he said. "SUCKS."
Well, never mind then...
