And That's One To Grow On

Dave: Unintelligible - that's so gay. Oh wait, I'm not supposed to say that.

Me: What?

Dave: "That's so gay." It's not... correct or something. You know that commercial telling kids that saying, "that's so gay," is wrong.

Me: It is wrong.

Dave: Why?

Me: Because it's offensive.

Dave: To who? Gay people?

Me: Yes, as well as their friends, family, and so on.

Dave: Why? It means happy.

Me: Oh, is that how you use it or how your kids use it?

Dave: No, you're right. Are you offended by it?

Me: Yes, I'm offended every time you say that.

Dave: Sorry.

Editor's note: Dave used that phrase more than usual after this conversation and made a big show of apologizing either before or after using it.
