109. Your mother attempts to tell you the facts of life: 'A man puts his seed into the lady so that it can fertilize her eggs'
Clueless 11 year old: How does the seed get into the lady?
Mother: '(laughing) you do say the funniest things'
Clueless 11 year old is now a muddled clueless 11 year old who now thinks that the seed somehow comes out of the man and slides across the bed and into the woman.
110. In the same conversation, the mother explains periods to the clueless 11 year old: 'You will bleed. This is where the lining of the womb comes away so that it can be replaced with a nice fresh one for the new eggs to grow in'
Clueless 11 year old: What? It comes out of me? I'm going to bleed? Yuck
Mother: '(laughing), yes but it's ok it doesn't hurt'
Clueless 11 year old spends the next year waiting for her stomach to split open
111. When clueless 12 year old gets her first period, she thinks her insides are falling out and that she's going to die.
The really odd thing is .... that particular mother is a nurse!
