My elder son Sean has been grounded. Week one was a total tv blackout, however week two he is allowed more 'educational' type tv. I loaded up the Netflix instant queue with documentaries and went about my business. I come back in the lounge to see him watching Tremors 2. 'Seriously my beloved?' I asked. 'Dude, they are Precambrian.'
Now I could have told him to turn it off. I could have asked him about the Precambrian era. I could have even asked him why he was calling me 'dude'. Did I do any of these things? No. I said tell me three ways to avoid the worms and three ways to kill them that are not in the film, whilst I make the popcorn.
