"That's Nuts!" - The Forbidden Phrase

“That’s nuts!” I said in astonishment, as the young girl tried to shock me with her crazy story.

“We're not allowed to say that! You shouldn’t say, ‘nuts,’” she said. “When you say, ‘That’s nuts,’ it means, ‘penis.’”

I get educated on something new every day.


  1. oh that's ridiculous. but pre-teens can put sex into almost EVERY word. Nuts-nutty have nothing to do with penises. It is true that nuts are a word used to describe testicles, but not in THAT context. Tell the little girl to get her brain out of the gutter. Nuts means CRAZY.

  2. Haha, that is so funny. I wonder if her parents actually told her that or if she was just confused.

  3. She has an awesome beautiful family with parents I really respect. Not sure if her understanding of this world was out of context, or perhaps that is the meaning. Not sure. But it was unexpected for me.


Your words make me grin.
