I’d almost Forgotten…

I was reading a post on Road Rage at this blog, and was driven to comment thusly:

It helps when you point a gun at them.

When my kids were little, I taught all four of that batch to give The Zapper Finger on command. As a Good Parent, I made sure they knew that it was only allowable to show The Zapper Finger in the car, and only when Daddy said, or Daddy would bend it a little.

“Red car! On the left! Zapper Finger!”…and the startled driver would be treated to four chubby fists sprouting middle fingers.

Parenting is a skill.

Indeed…and there are many more stories too numerous to mention here.

And yes, the statute of limitations is past.
