Aidan: Mommy? What's a tat?
Mommy: Well, it's a very delicate kind of stitch, like knitting or crocheting . . . .
(Aidan's brow furrows in confusion. Mommy decides to gather more information.)
Mommy: Um . . . . Where did you hear that word, Sweetie?
Aidan: You know, it's in Jesus Freak: "I saw a man with a tat on his big fat belly."
(Pause. Mommy is pretty sure the gentleman with the protruding midsection is not sporting a doily.)
Mommy: Oh. Never mind. That would be short for tattoo.
(The light dawns. Aidan is relieved to know that DC Talk has nothing to do with lace.)
My husband thinks I'm so weird.
