Once again, I find myself doomed.  Today's reason follows a conversation with Number One Daughter, the nine-yr-old Human Tape Recorder. (As mentioned, "Human Voice Ripper and MP3 Playback Device" lacks that je ne se qua.) It went as follows:

HTR:  I love Fridays in school because we have Guidance class.
BUMD:  You talk to the Guidance Counselor?
HTR:  She talks to the whole class every Friday.  Today we talked about the difference between hurtful comments and un-hurtful comments.  We had to list some comments that might be hurtful.  Some kids suggested, "Your best friend is ugly and you're retarded."  Someone else suggested, "Shut up, toilethead!"
BUMD:  I can see where those could be taken in a negative light...
HTR:  I said we could combine them and say, "Shut up, toilethead!  Your best friend is ugly and you're a friggin' retard!"  We came up with lots of hurtful comments.  Man, that was fun.
BUMD:  You're supposed to be learning how to say things that aren't hurtful, not how to make hurtful comments more effectively!
HTR:  Shut up, toilethead.  [laughs]

Doomed.


Yep, looks like another post from the Big, Ugly Man Doll!
