The older shall get served by the younger

Jonathan, almost crying: “Dad, I don’t want to play chess anymore. Nicolas won’t play easier.”

That’s Jonathan, the 7 year old intellectual prodigy, referring to Nicolas, the 5 year old boy who until recently tried hard to give the impression he had cotton fluff between his ears.

    …so what you really meant to say was…

    “The older shall get served.”

    Impressive all around, Hornes.

    Genius! I’ve changed the title and given credit (or pointed to where it can be found).

    Tell Jonathan his uncle knows exactly how he feels.

    Man, all this title-influencing is going to my head. Such power…

    You lot are putting delusions of grandeur into my addled brain; next thing you know, I’ll be trying my hand at NaNoWriMo in November.

    Come to think of it, that sounds excruciatingly fun.
