On Thursday night I was downstairs at church waiting for my turn to do the music and teach the Bible story at Master Club. One of the other teachers was talking about first aid and what you should do when a person isn't breathing. One of the little boys, probably about 5th grade, said it was "mouth-to-mouth participation." He said it several times and the teacher could not think of the right word. So while I was being very amused, I told her the word "resuscitation." Now my word was correct, but it wasn't nearly as interesting a term as the little boy's was. "Mouth-to-mouth participation" is probably not done during first aid, but it may be done at other times.
