This morning on the way to school, Pilgrim Dad and Athos passed by a hotel out of which tumbled a group of prostitutes. Athos saw them, turning his body to follow them until he couldn’t see them anymore. Pilgrim Dad took a deep breath and decided to engage Athos:
Pilgrim Dad: What are you looking at?
Athos: Those people aren’t wearing a lot of clothes.
PD: They’re prostitutes.
Athos: What’s that?
PD: You pay them money to have sex.
Athos: What’s sex?
Pilgrim Dad gives a brief description.
Athos: So sex is bad?
PD: No. Sex is a good thing when mummies and daddies do it. But it’s bad if people charge money to do it.
Considering the sun hadn’t even come up yet, I was impressed by both Pilgrim Dad’s courage and cogency.
