(world-weary sigh from probably the junior member of
the board)

Ladies, you embark on reproductive activities with
Fire Fighters, and then are surprised when you get
demon spawn. I’m disappointed in you all (laughing).

My parents were great believers in the value of
absurdity when raising me…no toddler likes to
believe that he/she/it (I think I was an it) is not
being taken seriously. Whenever I threw a tantrum (and
they claim I only threw one) they’d go get a couple of
newspapers, hide behind them, and whisper and
laugh…I’d shut up to hear what they were saying.
They also said that being mocked and ignored made me
embarrassed enough that I never did it again. On the
other hand, i didn’t sleep through the night for the
first two and a half years, and they never considered
having a second child, so I guess I wasn’t a perfect
little angel.
