Yesterday I was talking with my son, Bunny (not his real name), about the possibility of my undergoing breast reconstruction. Don't ask how we got going on that topic! But we did and he asked what reconskrukshun meant (he's 5).
Me: "Reconstruction means the surgeon would give me a new breast."
Bunny: "Can you get a...um...girlish one?"
Me: "What do you mean by that?"
Bunny: "Well, the one you have now isn't very girlish. Maybe he could give you one that's more girlish."
Me: "What would that look like, Bunny?"
Bunny: "Well, maybe one that's blue."
Me: "A blue breast?"
Bunny: "Yeah, blue! Or pink! Or blue and pink and purple. And sparkly!"
Me: "Well, I guess I could ask."
