From Liquor to Body Parts: Kids and Their Vices

On the first few days of school, most teachers gather some background information, trying to get to know the students who will be occupying their classroom for the next ten months.

So like all his second grade classmates, J completed a worksheet about his favorite activities, hobbies, and sports. His mom Susanna came across her son’s handiwork at his Back-To-School night.

This is what she saw.

As a teacher herself, Susanna was particularly horrified by her son’s favorite hobby: partying. More subtle was his favorite place to go, Ronny’s Market, their neighborhood liquor store. And she’s pretty sure J’s favorite thing to collect is “pennies,” not penis as it looks. But at she says, who knows?

How would your child/niece/neighbor’s kid (or you) answer these questions?
