“My lecture had finally grown tiresome, and he handed me a book.  It was yet another book about the sounds animals make that actually made the sound when you pushed the button on the picture, presumably since having a two year-old kid around wasn’t already loud enough.  These books drove me crazy – apparently, the most important thing a child could learn were the sounds animals made.  I don’t know why this was so important – unless a kid knew he wanted to grow up and become an 19th century trapper, was it ever going to come up later on in life?  How many job interviews are ruined because someone doesn’t know what sound a goat makes?”
