Whatddya say kiddo? Want to go to the waterpark?
Oh, yeah!
Sounds like fun?
Uh-huh! I’m gonna go on the fast slide.
That’s what they’re saying; they may not let you.
Why?
I would let you; they won’t cause you’re not tall enough. They have this line and they say “You have to be this tall to ride.”
What if I’m grown up?
If you’re an adult?
Yeah.
Um, I would say if you’re a man and you’re short there’s nothing they can do to stop you.
I’m a man.
You are?
Yes, I’m just short.
Really. If you’re a man what do you spend your money on?
Food.
Okay, you can go on the slide.
Thank you.
Wait a minute. If you’re a man what’s your favorite color?
Black.
Okay.
Thank you.
Wait a minute. If you’re a man what book are you reading?
The Nominal Almanac.
Okay.
Thank you.
Wait a minute—
Too late! I’m on the slide!
