Trad Music Addendum

Loosely related to yesterday's post, I was in the car this afternoon, between the bus stop and piano lessons, humming along to my new local Irish playlist

Suddenly a footstep on the stair
Who could it be but Reilly after slaughter
With two pistols in his hand
Looking for the man who shagged his daughter

My 10-year old pipes up from the back seat. "Did he say 'shot his daughter'"?

"Ah, no. He said something different."

"What did he say?"

Huh. Well, truth will out, I suppose.

"Uh, 'shag'. The word he said is, 'shag.'"

"What's that mean?"

"It has to do with kissing. Would you like more information?"


A parent's best defense: the 'K' word.
