When the Daily Post Prompt is a word I rarely use, I tend to check it on a search engine. This is what I came up with:
1. Of, relating to, or characteristic of plants.
2. Relating to growth rather than to sexual reproduction; vegetative.
3. Vegetal (wine), a descriptive term used in wine tasting.
Of course I knew it was related to plants/vegetables, and I vaguely remember it in our sex education classes, back in the late 50′, early 60′.
I wonder how many older folks out there smile on how sex education was approached in those days. Purely clinical. My parents never mentioned it, and when I was about to leave school at age 15, was asked if I had been told about the ‘birds and bees’ while at school.
How life has changed over the years. Anyone else remember how they found out, or willing to share?
