My Dad Is Smarter Than Your Dad

The other day, my daughter was complaining about a fight she'd had with a neighbor kid. She told us that she was mad at the kid, so she insisted that he get of our "proferty." She became extra mad at him when he wouldn't get off our "proferty."

It devolved into meaner things. This kid had the gall to say, "My dad is smarter than your dad."

My daughter admitted, "I don't even think that's true."

"Oh, really," I said, "You don't think his dad is smarter than me?" I wondered what she might use as an example of my intelligence. What was it that I had said or done that had proven to her how smart I am?

"No," she said, "He has a really small head. He can't be as smart as you. Your head is really big."

Apparently, being a fathead is good for something. I may have to put my hats on the last clasp to fit them on my head, but it makes me smarter than my little-headed neighbor.
