    Sixteenth-note arpeggios. I’m impressed.

    I know it’s cliche, but youth is SO wasted on the young. (sigh)

    Even more impressive since those are Sixteenth-note armpitggios.
     
    (Ok, ok, I apologize. I retreat in shame.)

    I agree. It’s tiresome when everyone wants to be young and carefree. Whatever happened to wanting to be useful and adult? You can be responsible and fun at the same time.

    Caufield needs a class of students as smart as he is and with instructional material to match the students!

    Getting old is mandatory. Growing up is optional!

    Didn’t need the last balloon.

    Exactly. I think the reason so many want to be young and carefree because they made the mistake of thinking being adult means you cannot have fun.

    Agreed. Rather un-Mallett-like to include that last balloon; he usually makes his readers work harder.

    On the other hand, very Mallett-like is the contrived set-up. I have never heard anyone say “Make yourself useful” without following it with a request to carry out a specific task: “Get off your butt and help me move this sofa”, for example.

    Still, Caulfield acts like a regular, funny kid here, which is a nice change of pace. I’ll take it.

    I welcome not having to wrack my brains to get a comic punchline. It’s no dumber this way.

    Armpit farts! Nothing funnier at his age….It would have been better without the last balloon, though…….Strod, never be ashamed of knowing more than other people about something or making bad puns….or musical farts, for that matter….

    Be reminded, too, Strod, that simply knowing some thing that someone else doesn’t know does not make you any better a person than the other. (But I’m sure you knew that already.)

    This principal just doesn’t strike me as the kind of man who would be holed up in his office with a bottle of spirits.

    As a youngster, my son could make armpit farts AND hand farts. Today, he occasionally amuses his children and irritates his wife at the same time.

    @Varnes. By the way, have you had much experience with the shame that comes with knowing stuff? A stranger in an airport cocktail lounge has confessed to you that he knows things others don’t and it’s tearing him up, the guilt and pain of it? And he was so relieved to get that off his chest?
