Children Are Frequently Shrewder Than We Think

Children dispense advice on the subject of marriage. Here's a great observation: How can a stranger tell if two people are married? Eight-year-old Derrick: "You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids".

In my local supermarket, it's not uncommon if the two adults shouting at the same kids are often tattooed, defacto, seemingly stoned and strangely distant from each other. But they do arrive and depart in the same car. And the neighbourhood's not bad. Mehaul.
