The Talk

My wife was telling me about what her colleagues at work say about discussing the "birds and the bees" with their children. This is something I would be happy to put off as long as possible. I've already decided to keep GoofGirl in a burqa. GoofBoy, by comparison, should be easy to handle. I know how to keep girls away from him. I'll give him time-tested advice. I will tell him every technique, trick, and move I've got (mostly stolen from Seinfeld episodes). If that doesn't keep the girls away - far away - I don't know what will.

At least that's how they worked for me.

I have something that will help you, courtesy of an Australian blog I read. You won't have to do any talking at all:

Do you really think the burqa thing will work? After all most people see a package and want to know what's inside....

@noteverstill: Oh, my. Yes, that should work nicely - certainly to prevent any experimenting....

I think the burqa sends the signal that "dad is a nut case, stay away." Getting anywhere with girls is hard enough for most boys, I don't think the additional challenge will tempt - you overestimate their need for challenges.

Yes, the Germans make wonderful games and children's books - why then is the national birthrate so low?
