Some of you may have seen that "chippie" ad on TV where the bloke says "I bet my left one they wont taste like mint and lamb"............and the next scene shows him singing in a choir and reaching a very high voice.

Ten year old grand daughter asked "Grandad what does it mean when he says "I bet my left one"

Err um mumble mumble not sure I missed that......you girls like some lollies.......

Now sold block, of no fixed abode, building new house. Darling wife has passed 1 year ago.

leg, arm, eye, ear.... just improvise.

But you have probably added to the mystery by delaying the answer, just pretend you are also deaf and didn't hear her question properly the first time.;):)

Sorry about the typo - Should read "I would just tell her what he means". And I would just be very matter of fact about it.

Ten is old enough to tell the truth. You could also tell her that the advert is in poor taste. Mind you its a bit tought for grand dad. Perhaps he could tell her to ask mum or Dad.

yep... at times like this it's certainly easier to have country kids.. they can relate to what goes on out on the farm far easier than some kids...

my 10 year old just had the abridged 'birds and bees' talk and now has a new appreciation of some of the jokes etc on TV... [:I] we now have to be a little more restrained with some of the laughter...!!!

I hate the 'keeps your knickers nice' advert.. nice??? from what??? aaarrrggghhhh... she doesn't need to know everthing just yet... :(

And why do those adverts come on while you are eating?

Had one from a grandchild the other week while we were watching an old black and white TCM movie and someone used the word gay. I got asked what gay mean't so I told them. "It means happy." Which it does, I didn't even need to lie.

Always send her off to find Grandma to let her know.... that would be something my Dad would do to E.

Granddad? Can't you do the "I have no idea answer" because really, that ad is on so much that it is bound to be on again when she is with her parents - and can ask them.

You know her - are you sure she wasn't "testing" you? MY rural girls at 10 would have known what the ad meant despite not having brothers! Just a fact of life really unless they went to a girls only school...isn't it?

We are lucky enough to have some of our city grand kids stay with us every month and with your help fore warned is fore armed. As you know one question always leads to another (especially when you start off with the removal of a left testicle), I have it sussed, when the next occasion arises it will be time for me to say "Oh I'll just go and grab another beer.........Gran can you explain that to Selena for me please"
