My Daddy Plays Piano in a Whorehouse
Mrs. Jacobson, a prim and proper, straitlaced lady, is a teacher of Grade Four students. One of the lessons is about the types of different jobs adults have…sort of a “what do you want to be when you grow up” type of lesson.
Part of it was asking the students what their parents do for a living.
“Sally, what does you father do?”
Sally proudly answers, “My Daddy is a Real Estate agent, and he helps people sell the house they own now, and buy a better house.”
“Very good, Sally,” replies Mrs Jacobson. “Jimmy, how about you? What does your father do?”
Jimmy smiles and says, “He works in a laboratory in a hospital and helps the doctors find out exactly how people are sick, so the doctors can help them get better.”
Johnny has been sitting at his desk, shoulders slumped and staring down. He’s asked, but mumbles something incoherent.
