Boy Witch

I picked the boys up from school yesterday and Alan apparently had something he wanted to confirm, something he had heard from another kid.

He asked, with all that adorable 6-year-old innocence, "Papa, is a boy that's a witch called a B*beep*ch?"

Trying not to laugh too hard I told him, "No, bub, that's a word for a girl dog, but that's also a grown-up word, okay?"

I think everyone in the gay community has known some boys, though, most people would call "boy witches" :-).

I thought a boy witch was a warlock

I thought they were diva's

Gosh, I'm striking out all around.

I grew up with the phrase "Twitch with a B"

I seem to recall saying something as a child about "Brigham Young and his spice". I explained to the blank stares that if the plural of "mouse" is "mice", then the plural of "spouse" must be...

Okay, it wasn't an unintentional gaffe, it was a lame attempt at a joke. I'm known for those.

That is hilarious. It makes sense - "bitch" could well be a portmanteau of "boy" + "witch".

Abe:

Oh no, we can be both :-).

Evan:
"I miss those days of innocence."

Ah but kids bring it all back.

Hey, it made me LOL.

Craig "portmanteau"

Heh heh. That is pretty funny :)

Actually, in Wicca, practitioners of both genders are called "witches".

Indigo, how do Wiccans manage then? The ideal coven must include both a loving witch and a warlock :-).
