Caribbean Thoughts

by Carol Mitchell

As I turn on to my street last night.
Radio: “Silent night, holy night, … round yon virgin.”
Younger pipes up: “Mommy, what’s a virgin.”
Mommy sings: “Sleep in heavenly peace.”
Older: “Don’t ask me, ask Mommy.”
Mommy bites the bullet: “A virgin is someone who has never had sex.”
Younger jumps out the car (we are now home), does a little dance in the driveway and yells: “I’m a virgin!”
I swear sometimes I live in a sitcom and the cameras are just hidden really well.
