Everything sublime is as difficult as it is rare. Baruch Spinoza

This a little less esoteric. My son, as a 7 year-old, had to write a poem for school. He was in what was at that time called The Talented and Gifted Program. Yes, I was cursed with a child who has a very large brain. Anyway, he brings his little ditty home to me, so proud of his work. It went as thus "My mother is so very thin, it's cause she drinks a lot of gin." Needless to say, parent/teacher conference was a little uncomfortable!
