Evolution continued

I am calling on The Kid to come blow his nose.

The Man, "Maybe colds are part of the evolutionary package?  What parent would like to eat their child if they have snot hanging out of their nose?" 

Me, "Are you trying to make me pick up the computer again so I blog about this?"

The Man, "Maybe. I got at least three hours of sleep last night, I'm full of witticisms today."

  1. It follows that to keep kids from catching cold all you need to do is convince them you've already eaten.

    There's a species of fish that puts their offspring "in bed" (i.e. covers them with sand) before going hunting to ensure they don't accidentally catch and eat their children. I will now recall this wonderful adaptation every time I witness parents reading a bed-time story, then having a late night snack.
