I shepherd 2 Sundays a month in the first grade class. Today, as my small group was finishing their craft, this is what was said........
Me: You guys rocked on that craft!
Her: (Gasping and throwing her hand over her mouth) You said a bad word!
Me: I did?
Her: uh, huh...
Me: What did I say?
Her: The K word.
Me: The K word? (thinking, thinking, can't think of one...) Whisper it to me....
Her: Crap. (Krap)
Me: No, I said craft. I said you guys really rocked on the CRAFT. (emphasis on this word.)
Her: Oh. My mom says KRAP but I can't.
I am so glad we cleared that up. I can cuss like a sailor but I also can put a lid on it in the right places. I really did say craft. The C word.
