An Innocent Scientific Discussion

“Mom, last week in science, we learned about intercourse,” Claire said.

I keep a straight face and will my breathing to be calm.

“Oh, really? What did you learn about it?” I ask.

“It’s deep inside,” she says, and I feel faint.

“…the earth,” she continues.
“…right below the outer core & mantle.”

I gasp out loud, “The INNER CORE, sweetheart. INNER CORE.”

She smiles and nods and has no idea why I’ve become so animated about geology.
