Welcome To The Bitchery

I was lining up my fourth graders for recess today.

A few kids were bouncing basketballs.

I said, “Everyone, please hold your balls.”

Cue... giggles and immediate regret.

I lectured them on how they were fourth graders and should be mature enough to hear that. Which is a lie, and I know that because I’m in my thirties and I still think balls are hilarious. I lied to my kids, you guys. I’ve become the sort of person who would deny someone the right to laugh at “balls.”


What words have you regretted?
