Nekkid People

My children have had way too much fun in the past day searching out all the drawings of people without clothing in their history encyclopedia. I remember a certain innocent and shocked fascination with the same sort of things -- especially when one ran across them in National Geographic. Of course, they've also been playing "cave man" today, which involves moving every piece of furniture in the kitchen and morning room, lots of blankets and running around in their underwear.

I have no comment at this time as to whether home schooling has involved much learning today, but it has involved more nekkidness than would be generally allowable outside the house.


Those savages! Maybe you should serve the cavemen some bronto-burgers for supper.

When your children made "finds" in the encyclopedia, did they also treat you to the muffled giggles, shushing, one keeping lookout while the other checks out the "find"? You know, all those subtle signals that they think they're getting away with something.

No Marc, they don't think they are finding anything particularly illicit. Therefore, every time they spot a drawing of people who are less than clothed, I generally hear, "Mom, I can see her nur-nurs! Come look!"

Of course, when the homeschooling thing has reached its conclusion, you could ship them off to UC Berkeley. Nekkid class attendance is welcomed there (at least legally speaking).

AJ, I think that's changed. Mrs. Skinny was at Berkeley when the famous "nekkid guy" was doing his thing. Mrs. said he checked the rules & there was nothing specifically requiring clothes. She said they changed the rule soon after.
