This evening Charles was being obstinate (it took him 20 minutes to put on his shoes and socks, and then he crawled from the media room to the car, through the garage, because I hadn’t fed him enough to have the strength to walk). As part of that, he decided to issue me “detentions”, which were sticky notes with a picture of a stick person handing another stick person a piece of paper (the detention, self-referentially) with a couple of lines of squiggles at the top to represent writing. It was too cute to get upset about. I tried to give them back, but Charles said I wasn’t “Detention Man” therefore it didn’t count.

Why is it when the children are hungry they can’t do anything, including get themselves food? If they were left out in the wild, I suppose they would perish, what with having no instinct to provide food, safety, or shelter for themselves once they get hungry.

Oh, they recover their capabilities with the proper incentives. For instance, the single word “cake!” will induce a recovery so complete that they will run, not walk.
