When I’m not busy killing squirrels & scaring neighbors, I’m researching & writing from home — in between the usual parenting & home life disturbances.
Today, while researching a vintage plastic donkey (don’t worry, you’ll hear about it all later), I am absentmindedly aware that my son has left the TV on and that an old episode of The Family Feud is playing on GSN.
It’s that final round, and it goes like this:
Richard Dawson: Name something that little boys like that little girls don’t.
Male contestant: Balls.
The audience snickers through the rest of round.
I do believe that when it came time for the “survey sez” that “balls” got bupkiss. But that’s not the point, now, is it.
