Real men play with cacti
My seven–year–old son came walking up to me at the soccer fields the other day. He had a big grin on his face and a cactus dangling from his two fingers. He was carefully holding it up by the roots, which he called the “safe” part. He called it that because my son had had a previous experience with a cactus on these same fields that was not so safe.
