Leaving the elementary school today, I talked to two 3rd grade boys who were playing on a snow pile. I asked them what they were doing, and one boy said “building a snow slide!” The other boy pointed to his crotch and said “A snow slide for boys!” and gestured to a small horn shaped mound of snow on the side of the hill. Then the first boy proceeded to slide down the hill, his crotch slamming into the mound, comically grabbing his privates for dramatic effect. It made me laugh and made me remember what it was like to just be a kid. I think adults have to lose that. It’s sad, but really, what kind of society would any culture have if all of the men were to do shit like that all the time?
