I knew a fellow whose childhood approach to not wanting to go to bed was to march up to his parents’ bedroom and give impromptu lectures. The most notable occasion was when he announced himself as follows:
I am here today to talk to you about Sharp Tools and Dangerous Weapons.
Well, friends, it’s Free Form Friday.
I am here today to talk to you about Things That Look Like Things.
This is not because I am putting off any imposed bedtime but because it is a topic truly bugs me and it was bound to come up sometime.
