I am becoming a man now

Today a very sweet girl named May came up to my desk for some pronunciation help on her oral presentation next week. She wanted to make sure she was pronouncing the words "breast" and "rectal" correctly. And then we went back and forth saying "rectal" and "breast" until she had them correct.

"Breast"
"Breast"
"Breast"
"Breast"
"Good. Rectal."
"Rectal"
"Rectal"
"Rectal"
"Rectal"
"Good. Rectal."
"Rectal."

I didn't laugh once, or even smirk. I am becoming a man now.
