Watching the Winter Olympics with the youngling...

“Ooh figure skating!”

“Ug,” says the child.

“Think about it this way: she’s pretty much wearing knives on her feet and he’s throwing her up over his head like that.”


“Yup. He could get decapitated. You never know.”

“Huh,” he says, considering. “But they’re professionals.”

“True. But these guys get injured all the time. They practice everyday.”


“Oh sure, blood and gashes and stitches and bruises. You name it.”

“Yep,” Dad contributes. “Imagine blood all over the ice.”

“Alright, I’m in.” The kid settles back in the couch.

The judges award Mom and Dad a 9.8 in the pairs event.

Happy Valentine’s Day, everybody.
