I met a small creature when I was up at the park this morning. The creature addressed me thus: "I jump. I jump and jump and jump." And this he demonstrated splendidly, all over the pavement, to a point where admiration compelled me to say, "My goodness--you're like a kangaroo!" Whereupon he paused mid-jump to divulge the shocking truth in the most matter-of-fact tone imaginable:"No, I'm a boy."
