Dictonaries Are Dangerous

Diva was looking up vocabulary words. She came across the word 'org*sm' and asked me what it was. (She pronounced it Orgism)

Me: Uh...where did you hear that word?
Diva: I just read it in my dictionary. I think it means to throw up.
Me: Uh...*snort* *snicker* Why do you say that?
D: Well, because your organs do that to you...make you puke.
Me: Uh huh. Well, I'm sure its not in your vocabulary list, so get on with what you're supposed to be looking up.

Geez. Of all the things I never worried about, it was dictionaries!

And yes, explaining what an org*sm is to my 10 yo had me freaked. Menstruation, how her body works in all other areas, fine. That, not so much.
