Q & A

Q: What does it mean when you find a bear with a wet nose?

A Cherokee Indian was a special guest at my sister's primary school class. He talked to the children about his tribe and its traditions.

Then, he went on to share with them this fun fact: "There are no swear words in the Cherokee language."

One boy raised his hand. "But what if you're hammering a nail and accidently smash your thumb?"

"That," the fellow good-naturedly answered, "is when we use your language."
