How do you spell organism??


This came to me today from my good friend in Arizona...



On planning out our ecosystem (terrarium gardens), a child said,

"Ms. W., Can we have more than one orgasm in the garden?"




Do you think she kept a straight face???



I wonder.

Well, if it was my garden the answer would obviously be yes. Your garden, however, would be a different and not quite as... bountiful.

Captain Dumbass said...

That would have been so much funnier if I'd remembered to write "story."

...depends on how prickly the cucumbers are.

As a 6th grade teacher who teaches science, I can tell you that this organism/orgasm "snafu" pops up just about every year - some years more than once. It is hard to keep a straight face, especially when I have a co-teacher in the room. Some of the kids start giggling and others have no clue at all what is so funny.

The Good Cook said...

Absolutely, you can have as many as you can muster up!

WeaselMomma said...

It all depends on who you may be planting with.

Brian Miller said...

why yes you can...but only on a good day. and after a brief nap.

Snappy Di said...

*Raises Hand* to vote for voting "yes" to multiple orgasms in the garden. Now the question is... in the carrot row or near the celery stalks??

Yes! Yes! Yes! YES! YES! YES! YES!

Sara said...

I have a history with that word.

I asked my parents what it meant when I was 7 or 8 years old. By my mother's reaction, I knew it was bad.

Luckily, I was a good speller. The dictionary and I became friends that day.

Robin said...

The more the merrier..in my garden..!

Middle Aged Woman said...

I have a former colleague, who won't use the term "climax" when she's teaching the story arc. It makes her blush too much!

halpey1 said...

Awesome... I get some VERY interesting spellings in Kindergarten too... 'My Hos' - love that one.

Michele said...

When you are young yes. When your garden is a little older...not so much.

CatLadyLarew said...

That's why I love teaching... the little rascals always come up with something amusing. (Unbeknownst to them.)

w said...

depends on whether the neighbors call the cops. because i hate it when they do that. but worse is when they call animal control.

Rick Daley said...

It depends on how ripe the cucumbers are.

SkylersDad said...

is this the same little one who informed you the first part of digestion is masturbation?

Amo said...

Hey, those petunias aren't going to plant themselves...

Cora said...

We can though, right?

Kathy's Klothesline said...

I love orgasmic gardening.......

The Mayor said...

If I'd only known I was going to be a blogger when I grew up I would have kept a journal of all the little conversational jewels my 6 kids have given to me.

Mrs. E said...

Not known for keeping a straight face--I would have been bawling!! And class would be over for the day!

bluebonbon said...

I knew there was more than planting going on in the garden...why else would someone make it a hobby, and join gardening clubs??? Hmmmm

"Mary, Mary
Quite contrary
How does your garden grow?"


I'm thinking about getting a bit more eco friendly now.

Scope said...

- Depends on if you're a HOE or not.

- Play it safe. Make sure there's a RUBBER tree.

- That's package says, "rhubarb" not "rub-hard".

Maureen@IslandRoar said...

Why do you think I love gardening so much??

Red Shoes said...

I am sure that my orgasms have left quite a few organisms around... :oD

~shoes~

Tara@Sticky Fingers said...

Sure we have them in our garden. Right up in the corner by the ivy wall. Right behind the cabbages ...

Melinda said...

That reminds me of 8th grade biology. We all had petri dishes of organisms that looks like microscopic worms. A boy in my class came over to me as I was checking my organisms out under the microscope and asked "How are your orgasms?" To this day I am not sure if he misspoke or was being a smart ass.

CarrieAnn said...

I would just settle for one!

Beth P. said...

Lol. I was laughing after reading your post but now after reading these comments I'm dying. Poor woman.... I'm not sure how I would've responded - I'm not too quick witted.

Heather said...

My garden is much more boutiful than Captain Dumbass' so I would say YES! but I don't want to brag and make the poor man sad.

Joanie M said...

Well, that makes me want to try and find out!

Char said...

Ah yes, you can but you don't have to be greedy about it. And, remember there is a time for reaping.

Real Live Lesbian said...

Yes, you may. Up to five, but no more!

kristi said...

Was she in the row with cucumbers or carrots??
