The Tenth Commandment

My son is in first grade at a Lutheran school, and they are to memorize a verse each week. They've been going through the Ten Commandments and are on the last this week: "You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey . . ." I keep wanting to add "poolboy." Would my son's teacher get the wrong impression?

I suppose the Sixth and Tenth Commandments constitute the Lutheran version of Sex Ed; at least they're not teaching him to put condoms on cucumbers.
