back to school doom

I remember my first day of third grade. I was standing in line to enter to school and two third-grade wiseguys asked me, “Hey, did you ever fart?,” and while I was thinking it over I knew either way I was going to give the wrong answer.

Ah, one longs for one of those switcheroo movie moments. I'd go back now and say, "Do you know the average person farts 17 times a day?"

I can imagine these two going directly to being two tedious elderly uncles, telling the same joke over and over at family gatherings, with no significant history in between.

My son and I just finished reading "Good Families Don't" a hilarious Canadian picture book about a highly visible fart infesting a proper middle class family. Ah, the joys of raising young children.

A bit like when the older boys ask Stephen Dedalus if he kisses his mother goodnight.
