Super-Soakers hanging on the livingroom wall
I've had at least five people tell me the reason they wouldn't want to comment here is that it's searchable by Google. My question is -- why is that a problem? I don't mean that in a mocking way like grow some balls or something. I don't mean it in the way Margaret and I would wonder why our friends wouldn't join us singing and dancing to "I'm gonna wash that man right outta my hair" on the steps of China Ruby. I'm just really curious as to why. Is it that prospective employers might find it? Potential future husbands, wives, sperm donors? And if they were to find it, what would be the problem then? I think this may be one of the many things I missed in How To Grow Up to Pass for a Normal, Semi-Functional Adult in 21st-Century America. Then again my parents had a super-soaker hanging the livingroom wall for a large part of my childhood and the most valuable piece of art we had was the 6-foot poster of a Coca-Cola bottle taped up in the kitchen. Which is why I know I should like the movie A Thousand Clowns but I just can never get past that interminable interview with the social workers. I do, however, love that opening scene where the boy reads aloud the job listings and Jason Robards says, "Are those the want ads or the obits?" Oh man, I can't believe I didn't put this on the noncompliment list (and there are so many more I still have to post). Grow up! A freshman girl once said that to Margaret and I when we were seniors and we were just floored, horrified.
