yeah, when i was a kid i got much more than 'the look;' i got the promise! dad would say 'want to go home and have a co-cola (which we always used in the south instead of coca-cola)? i knew what that meant, for sure, and it sure wasn't just 'the look.' before we went to a home or restaurant for a meal, we were coached. did that make it unpleasant? absolutely not; it meant being like grown-ups. have i suffered from all of this squelching of my holy individualism and creativity? absolutely not. am i thankful? you better bet. hombre
