Wiener cancer is usually no laughing matter...but this day it was

One day while I was pumping gas the 11 year old boys were in the car talking about "wiener cancer" and if there is even such a thing. Sage says that you can have cancer anywhere because you have cells everywhere. So while they are discussing it Ricky overheard and goes around the car to where I am and tells me. I crack the car door and start listening to them, they are aware I'm listening as I hear them settle on the fact that they are in agreement: weiners can get cancer. After a few seconds I abruptly leave to run inside the gas station store for something. When I jump back into the car I matter-of-factly say, "Hey boys, there is such a thing and it's called penile cancer." Caught off guard they say. "What?" I repeat myself, "Wiener cancer... it's such a thing, it's called penile cancer." Sage's eyes opened wide and with a goofy grin he exclaimed in disbelief, "You ASKED THE GAS STATION people?"

Ricky and I almost couldn't stop laughing.
