please think of the children

Work, work, work. No time for anything much for a few days, but I'll always make room for quality.
Basically children's book wins Newbery Award, librarians find an odd word in the book, author reacts to "censorship."
I'm not sure if the ten year old target audience in the book would buy the text that,
“Scrotum sounded to Lucky like something green that comes up when you have the flu and cough too much,” the book continues. “It sounded medical and secret, but also important.”
I don't have kids, so I don't need to make the call.
Work, work, work.
Back in a few days.

Every ten year I have ever known, knew what scrotum means.

True enough Rod.
I'm sure you were an exceptionally well read ten-year old yourself.
