I made the mistake of saying that something was “faster than a New York minute” and thus was forced to jump into a long explanation about how busy NY city is and how everyone is bustling around but if you live in the country time feels slower because your job has a more relaxed feel to it, unless of course all the cows on your farm are dying. . . Such explanations are rarely accepted by seven-year-olds however.

Sweet Boy #3–While wrestling with his brother, he pauses to say–“You broke my armpit’s jaw!” A dangerous injury indeed.
