His New Genes

Grown-up Genes

H: Hey! I put up the blinds, assembled the furniture, replaced the bulbs…organized finances, looking into college saving plans.

S: <big smile> Aww. Wow, did your grown-up genes turn on where the sun don’t shine??


<Hours later, H plays with his new remote controlled helicopter for hours.>


S: I guess the grown-up jeans are off !?

Royal Serfs


Day 1 at the Borg, the Nooglers gather.

Voice of  G: “and there’s 14 cafeterias and free food, free food and free food, free laundry, free cellphones, free cars…”

Young Noogler whispers: Royal treatment! And I hear it only gets better!

H [inside thought]: There’s no such thing as a free lunch young Noogler; no such thing.


On the other hand, the serf could look forward to being well fed during his service; it was a poor lord who did not provide a substantial meal for his serfs during the harvest and planting times.

Chitty Indians in Malaka

After a year apart, they travel in search of food fun and exotic people.

Sticky rainforests, sunny beaches, dancing Chittys, oodles of noodles, coconut treats, and then finally, home.
