a note about children: i do not like it when parents control their kids by continuously cajoling them with demands and instructions. there are four boys under the age of 6 at this house right now, and i am sick of the refrain created by the parents’ continual commands. it’s driving me crazy, and i can’t hide it very well. this is why certain people think i hate kids. no, i want to yell at them, i just hate the way you treat yours!
