A Strange New Instrument

So a couple of weeks ago my spanish speaking neighbor stopped by my house for a little visit. During our conversation Mr. Man interrupted with an interesting conversation of his own. Here is how it all played out...

Mr. Man: "Mom I wanna learn how to play the Vulva!"(His voice was full of excitement)

Me: "You wanna play the what?!"

Mr. Man: "The Vulva mom!" ( he seemed annoyed thinking I hadn't heard him the first time)

My neighbor: "I didn't know that was an instrument, I think I need to check my english language dictionary. (English is her second language and she was laughing while she said this)

Me: "Let me process what you just asked me for a moment. You wanna play the what?!"

At this point Little Miss comes out the house cracking up laughing. "You're not saying it right!" she exclaimed.

They had been watching video clips on YouTube. In one of the videos a man known as the "Mystery Guitar Man" plays a plastic horn known as the vuvazela(pronounced voo-vuh-zel-uh) So Mr. Man looks at me and asks "Then whats the vulva mom? It sure sounds like it would be fun to play!" Me who never gets embarrassed turned bright red and told him I would explain it to him when he was 8. Now knowing him and his memory at his 8th birthday party in front of all the party guests he'll call out "Remember mom you told me you would tell me what the vulva was when I turned 8!"
