And though I'm nobody's poet, I thought it wasn't half-bad

Boy Child, singing: If you like penis coladas! Gettin' caught in the rain!

Me, interrupting: Um, Boy Child? Did you say "penis" coladas?

Boy Child: Yes! You know. That song! That song about...well, I don't know what it's about, but it goes, "If you like penis coladas! Getting caught-"

Me, interupting again: Sweetheart. It's not penis. It's PINA.

Boy Child: Pina?


Boy Child: Oh.

Several moments pass.

Boy Child: Mom? What's a pina colada?

Me: It's a drink.

Boy Child: A drink? Like...alcohol?

Me: Yes.

Several more moments pass.

Boy Child, scoffing: Who would sing about alcohol anyway?

Me: Probably different people than the ones who would sing about penises.

I will NEVER be able to sing the 'proper' lyrics again. I heart the Boy Child!!

Oh, my goodness- that kid is funny.
And since my boy thinks penis is just about the funniest word in the english language, I'll make sure he doesn't hear that song any time soon.
