Just Theoretically

If you put sunblock in your six-year old's backpack, and you told the camp counselor, and the camp counselor promised you she would put it on your six-year old, and your six-year old came home with a sunburned back because the camp counselor never put the sunblock on, would you be justified in taking a blowtorch to the camp counselor's back?

I simply wish to say after reading your thoughtful posts and laconically adroit zingers over at Patterico's Pontifications, you sir/madam, win one internets!

I bet that compliment is from the negligent camp counselor so don't let it go to your head. Neverthless, you should add "laconically adroit zingers" to your business cards. That's not only true, it's priceless.

According to my Site Meter, it's someone from Houston, Texas. I doubt that it's Beldar, though. I will think about adding it to my testimonials.

Okay, I was kidding about it being the camp counselor but I wasn't kidding about it being a compliment. You really do write "laconically adroit zingers." The fact that a Texan came up with it is just icing on the cake.

I didn't get the "win one internets" part but now that I know a Texan wrote it ... well, it's great, too.

And I'm sorry about the sunburn. I'm sure you handled it and it's too late now but, FWIW, I'd treat it with something that has aloe vera.

Thank you, DRJ. She's fine. She didn't even notice it. That it showed, anyway. She's one tough little cookie.

A girl after my own heart. Tough on the outside, soft and sweet on the inside.

I put it in our son's backpack for day camp, too, and he also came home with a sunburn. When asked why they didn't make sure he had it on (since the camp insists that we provide it) they said they didn't want anyone pressing charges for them touching the kids.

Ah, America.
