The Era of the Backwards Underwear

El Magnifico has a good golf buddy who is sweet, funny . . . and uber-competitive. The other day, he didn’t play so well. That night, he texted El Mag with a unique excuse:

He had come home from golf, went to take a shower, and realized that he had had his underwear on backwards the whole time!

I laughed, but then realized that is exactly how the last several months have felt.

I mean, amid the covid-19 debacle, the perplexing hatred of President Trump, the trashing of our downtowns and historic statues, the Nazi-style edicts that 100% of us must wear masks when the actual death rate from this virus is about .000001% of the population .…

The Boys and Their Kites

We were going to babysit our “grands” for the weekend. El Magnifico found several old kites and was excited to introduce them to that great childhood experience. The kites hadn’t seen the light of day for probably 25 years.

I was amused as they took over the living room, then his office, as he fussed with them in preparation. He made a special trip to the sporting goods store. He tweaked the set-ups for hours on end, and chose the most flight-worthy one. I was wondering what was up with all this effort.

Finally, the big day came.

All-American Black Hero

Here’s a great story for the Fourth of July, particularly this one!

Several years ago, I ran a book drive to give away gently-used books from suburban families to inner-city kids in an after-school program. Many of them had zero books in their homes. I also wanted to build up the library of the after-school, so I set aside books of special interest to multicultural readers for that purpose.

One of them was about Crispus Attucks. I had never heard of him. Here I was, decades out of school, but I had never heard the name of the first patriot shot and killed in the Revolutionary War – who happened to be black and Native American.
