No, what do you have to do?

2006-05-03 - 8:47 p.m.

Okay, for a change, no Grommet talk today. Instead, a true conversation I witnessed a number of years ago between a 60-something man (Lloyd) and his 10 year-old grandson (Brian):

Lloyd: So Brian, any big plans these days for your future?

Brian: Well grandpa, when I grow up Iíll probably get married and adopt a couple of kids.

Lloyd: Adopt a couple of kids? Donít you want to have kids of your own?

Brian (in a lowered voice): Grandpa, do you know what you have to do to have kids?


Ah, the benefits of sex education for kids. Clearly he hadnít put the pieces together that Grandpa, in fact, had kidsÖ Brianís mom, for instance.

That means no swiping my stuff - text, images, etc. - without asking.

P.S. If you're emailing me, replace the [at] with @ in the "to" line. Oh, and if you put the word "journal" in the subject line it'll have a better chance of making it past my junk mail filters.
