Ladies for Life

The pregnant fireman vocabulary lesson

Posted on: January 2, 2010

The assignment was to write a sentence about a public servant. The little boy wrote: “The fireman came down the ladder pregnant.” The teacher took the boy aside to correct him. “Don’t you know what pregnant means?” she said. “Sure,” the boy said. “It means carrying a child.”

(Well, yes it does, indeed! But, of course, not quite in that way…)

hat tip: adapted from an email titled  “Grandchildren…,” that came to my husband via an uncle. No attribution was given.
