20. Talk about the first time learning about sex.

My mom first introduced the topic when I was in first grade. She sat down on the side of the tub when I was bathing and tried to explain it. I was completely uninterested, fascinated as I was at that time with my fragrant tub toys from the Avon catalog. (I especially liked my pink whale that squirted shampoo from the blow hole.)
The thing I remember most about it was my mom's concluding line, that after mommies and daddies have sex they never
talk about it -- not to anyone!
I think she was afraid I'd give seminars at the playground. But still, it struck me as an odd thing to say, both then and now.
