    My little guy is five and in kindergarten. An only child, he is discovering the joys of playing with other children.

    The other night after school we had the following conversation
    him: "Mom do you know about tongue wrestling?"
    me: "No, tell me about it"
    him: "Well, you stick your tongue out and then the other person lays their tongue on top, and they wrestle! Gavin and I were doing it at school."

    Of course, at this point a million things go through my head - but mostly I'm worried about germs (I mean none of these kids have had their H1N1 vaccines yet). So, I speak to him at some length about how gross this is and how easy it is to get sick.

    him: "But Mom, Jeremy was doing it with his dog!" (implication, Jeremy is not sick, so why should I worry).

    I just hope that the dog has had his flue shot!

    Yeah! I wouldn't want to see the poor dog get sick. Who knows what those kids have been in to!

    I know they sent children up chimneys - but surely not dogs!

    Sure they do. There is a special breed called "Hot" Dogs, obviously referring to the fact that they send them in while the flames are up.

    I'm sure there is some internet rule about spotting the typo AFTER posting!

    I understand Santa is getting his flue shots, even as we speak.
