    Edj, re: #26. I don’t know if you remember this from university or not, but there was a story in the paper around that time about these three little brothers who had, like, dulled nerve endings? Some unusual medical condition. So they’d spend their days jabbing forks into electrical outlets just to *feel* something.

    Their mom was a mess over it, needless to say. “Someone! Make. Them. Stop.”

    We were all obsessed with their story and passed the clipping around. Crazy university students. Crazy little brothers.

    I don’t remember that, but then, my brain cells have mostly departed. How depressing.
    Do you remember the Shel Shelstein’s (What’s his name? The End of the Sidewalk and Giving Tree guy) alphabet book? Uncle Shelby’s A-Z book, or something. It was so funny! “H is for hole. You can dig a hole in the back yard and put things in it. What will fit? Daddy’s keys, Mommy’s wallet. Here is your little sister. She will tell on you and you will get in trouble. What else can you put in the hole?”
    It was funnier than that, even. I wish I still had my copy.

    A friend wanted to loan us that book and I told her no. My kids were obsessed with it the one time they saw it, and of course Hockey God thought it was perfect for them.
