Funny Story: What the Rock?

In kindergarten I remember sitting at the lunch table on a normal day. Then in a conversation I said the word "rock", and then most of the kids around gasped or pointed at me. Then I remember a teacher pulling me aside and taking me to some office. It was only until years later that I assumed they thought I said the curse word that starts with F. Little sad that kids in class even knew what it was. Too bad my speaking skills weren't terribly great back then.

That's a cute story. I remember having to pass a teacher and quietly saying excuse me. She hauled me over the coals for not saying 'excuse me'. I was a shy kid and people could barely hear me when I spoke in class, and I certainly couldn't open my mouth to tell her that I wasn't the rude kid she thought I was. I got detention for being too quiet :)

I agree that it's sad that little bitty kids should know such a word.

I remember a neighbor couldn't say her f's and when she said "fishy" I thought she was saying "b*tchy". I was 6 and laughed and laughed. Yes, I was a very immature child.

When our boy was a toddler we were on vacation riding a bus and he saw an interesting truck and starting yelling at the top of his voice, "Truck!." Only he pronounced it with an "F." We were mortified.
