How was your day?

     Everyday my little Rosebushes are soaking up something new.  Sometimes it's new words, new skills, and even new games.  I send Emma to school everyday and I trust that she will learn something new from her friends and her teachers. Today I was certainly not disappointed.  
     Today Fred and I picked Emma up from school, which is a special treat because Fred is usually working.  We had some errands to run so we went over our plan for the rest of the day and went on our way.  While we were driving around Emma very excitedly said "'Ms. Marsha told us about a game that they used to play when they were kids."  Usually Emma is pretty mum about school so Fred and I were excited to get some schoolday details. This is the conversation that followed.

Me -"Cool, tell me about it."
Emma -"You're going to love this.  It sounds fun."
Me - "Oh"
Emma - "You take an empty Coke bottle and you sit in a circle around it."
Now I can sort of see where this is going and I'm curious.  I just let her continue.
Emma - "You take turns spinning the bottle and whoever it lands on you have to kiss!  Isn't that a crazy game?"
Me -"You learned this at school?"
Emma - "Yep, it's called spin the bottle."
Me - "Wow, that's a silly game."
What I wanted to say was OH MY LORD!  What the heck are they teaching you?  Ms. Marsha taught  you this?  Oh wow!

I looked at Fred and we both had a good laugh.  Both of us are very curious why spin the bottle was the topic of conversation in a classroom full of five year olds in a Christian school.  I asked Emma why they were talking about that and she said she couldn't remember.  This is one thing that she learned in school that I hope she forgets!   I never know what I'm going to hear when I ask "how was your day?"
