Sad But True

I teach at an interesting school, that much is certainly true.  But this just amazed me.  While telling a story about how missionaries taught children math, a kid asked, “What’s a missionary?”  I was dumbfounded.

Turns out that he was bothered by my use of the word “missionary” because he was only familiar with it in sexual references. Sad, but true.
