[Work] Are You F@(%?

Two of my 2nd grade girls just asked me "Are you f@(%?"

Now, I know the word, but I'm trying to not teach my students foul language (this year). Plus, I wasn't exactly sure what they were asking. Do you f@(%? (I've been getting asked that a lot of late)

I expressed bewilderment, and dodged the question. Temporarily, it turns out.

They two caught up with me between classes, and asked the same question. They even spelled f@(% for me. I said I still didn't understand. Are you? It didn't make any sense, and I wasn't going to work out the grammar for them.

So they resorted to Japanese. Are you hentai? THAT I understand.

I asked them, "Do you mean to say, 'are you perverted?'" (and thereby taught them the word 'perverted', which I'm sure will come back to haunt me soon)

They giggled, and said yes, and then ran off. Apparently, they weren't asking =ME= the question, they just wanted some help with their English.

I wonder whom the question is for...
