"That's a Bad Word"

Abigail's homework assignment was to pick three words that rhyme with "truck" and write a sentence for each word.

Her first word was "luck".

She then tried "book" but that's only an approximate rhyme.

Her next word rhymed with "truck".

I asked her to repeat what she said.

She did.

"Sweetheart, that's a bad word. We don't use that word." I can be a very good father sometimes.

I had a feeling this might happen when I saw the assignment.

We have a certain little boy who has used that word, " Get in the F--ing car." I had to try so hard not to laugh as I was admonishing him.
