Well, it’s happened. My two older sons have gone back to school after a four-week break. The reason they had such a long vacation, by the way and because I know you are aching to know, is because the last week of break is “project week”.
Seven days devoted to industry. Not once did the boys stray from their assigned task—not once were they distracted by neighborhood friends or handheld gizmos. Not once, I tell you!
(80 times maybe, but not once.)

George, of course, being of sound mind and stubborn genes, was not to be outdone by his two older brothers. He did his research in the realm of food science, wondering, as it were, what would be the effect of an entire bottle of hot sauce upon a side dish of vegetables.
He’s pleased, I think, with the results. Such mass! Such density! Such color! Such smell!
Did his teacher try it? She did not.
She served it instead to the headmaster.
