DR. SEUSS REVEALED 12-21-2004

Last night was a study night so I got home after 9. PJ was still awake so I stuck my head in.

"Daddy, can you read me a story?" He asked.

Sure, why not, I thought to myself. Little did I know I was dealing with the STALL-MASTER!

"Oh, the places you will go!" I started to read. One of my favorites, a Dr. Seuss classic.

"Daddy, what places will I go to?" PJ asked. I ansered as best I could, and continued.

"What's a flugal horn?"

"I don't know exactly, its an instrument like a tuba."

"What's a boom band?"

"Well, its, look, its a Dr. Seuss book okay?"

"Why is the grass blue"

"What is that animal?"

"How can he pull that thing all by himself."

"I DON'T KNOW. LOOK, I'M NOT BUDDHA! ITS A CHILDREN'S BOOK! ITS LATE AND I JUST, I JUST--PLEASE JUST LET ME READ IT TO YOU! OK?."

"Okay." He sounds dissapointed. I immediately feel guilty. After what seems like forty minutes I finish reading and leave the room, with none of Mr. Gueisel's secrets left unrevealed.
