I didn't know what lover meant as a child but I had heard the word and assumed it meant a lover was a person who loved another person, like a crush.

This was a Lutheran school and my mom did the church daycare on Sundays and had a mouse puppet. I used to take the puppet and acted like it had a big crush on the pastor's daughter (yes 6th grade Marykae, you were totally straight).

One day I took my joke out of the weekend and into the school week and would say "K**** has a lover " in a sing song teasing way. When my teacher pulled me aside and asked me to explain (oh, because I also wrote it on a piece of paper) as if I did something wrong, that's when I realized I didn't know what Lover meant.

The end.
