Hypothetically Speaking

Let's say you're in the car with your two kids, and let's say they're, um, oh, 6 and 3. A girl and a boy, in that order. And let's say you're not paying a lot of attention to them until you hear your 6-year-old daughter say to your 3-year-old son, "N, wanna touch tongues together?"

In this situation--which is, remember, just hypothetical--what would you do? Would you:

A) Flip out completely, hitting the brakes in the middle of the freeway, pulling over to the side of the road, demanding to know what possessed your daughter to try and tongue-k*ss her brother, and lecturing your children about the genetic, emotional, religious, and societal dangers of inc*st?


B) Chuckle to yourself, secure in the knowledge that N is still too damned young to figure out what the heck Em wants him to do or why and so will simply keep touching Em's tongue with his finger making her more and more infuriated, and then start planning out just how you're going to write a blog entry about the whole experience?

Hypothetically, of course.
