I teach high school English, but let's be real. I mention the word "booty" and uncontrollable laughter and embarrassed giggles break out. I try to discuss the prizes or bounty of battle by using an appropriate word to describe these treasures but all my students envision is modern day lyrics and music videos of "booty" that have a clearly different connotation. So, as I have been knitting baby booties and deciding ways to embellish them before putting them in my Etsy shop, I find myself giggling a little and missing those students at whom I would offer a stern look if they were to do the same!
