    I pity today’s kids — they have no idea how to have fun!

    I’m hoping that this story arc continues with Flo giving the girls her old yo-yo. Joe then demonstrates some tricks but, with thirty years of rust on his yo-yo wrist, gets a concussion when he raps himself on the head while trying to go around the world.

    Maybe she’ll figure it out, It took quite a while before I learned how to make a yo-yo do more than yo.

    She needs a stick if she is going to roll that hoop properly. That is the earlier usage.

    “they have no idea how to have fun!”


    And therein lies the problem, perhaps. When was “fun” transformed from something you make into something you have? The word “have” implies that fun is a possession, something you buy from somebody else, rather than something you create for yourself. Which serves the toy industry well, but makes for a less human humanity.

    Our local PBS station plays reruns from “The Ed Sullivan Show.” The really early shows (“riiily greeeat shows”) have old performers, probably from the last of the vaudville acts, doing plate spinning and tricks with hoops.
