so my kid wore a cubs t-shirt to summer camp today

it's the blue shirt with the big red C in a white circle logo. the camp is located at a place that has a pool, where old dudes swim in the morning. three of them and one old lady all commented on what a great shirt he had on. one of the wrinklier of the old guys leaned down and told him that it was a wonderful choice and that would build character (my kid has no idea what this means; in any event, he did what he also does when strangers talk to him -- smile nervously and protect his crotch with his hands).

anyway, i thought it odd that so many would comment on it. i was steering the young dudes toward the dodgers but maybe it's time to rethink that decision.

*there is one untruth in the above post.
