Boring Explication of RG’s Alternative Future #2
August 14, 2008
Then I thought about the postcard I got from my daughter. What will happen to my granddaughter as she grows up in her coming not very brave new world? I don’t know. I am glad that she was able to walk over a mile up a hill without whining and pee in a scary outhouse without uttering a peep at the age of four years old. This may be a good sign that she will be able to do what she needs to do when she is twenty or thirty and Grandpa won’t be around to hold her hand.
(If Grandpa is still around, he will be hiding his decrepit old self under the bed and clutching his air rifle.)
