Ethan said to me, "Dad, I want to watch a race."
I said, "A car race? A horse race? A dog race?"
Ethan said, "A race where people run."
We flipped through the channels and found a women's, college-level, cross-country race. Ethan and his younger sister, Olivia, watched with keen interest. After a minute or two of watching the girls running like gazelles, Olivia turned to me and asked, "Why aren't they punching each other?"
For the record, the last video game system I bought was a Playstation 1.
