Both Natalie and Mark earned excellent markings on their recent report cards. As a reward for good work (a 4.0), we decided to buy Natalie an American Girl Doll. Mark wanted a game for his PS2 or my XBox 360.
Today, I took Mark to GameStop in order to buy a game. At least the first five games that he asked for were rated "M" (Mature), so I had to tell him no. After the fifth or so request, Mark asked me exasperatedly, "When can I buy a rated "M" game?"
"When you're older," I said.
To which he asked, "How old?"
"Not until you're in High School," I replied.
"Is that when I'll grow hair around my penis?" He asked loud enough for anyone in the store to hear.
"Yes," I answered, "that's about when."
