Naturally, some unfortunate families had fewer of these luminaries. Some quirks occurred as the result of trauma, like diving off the cliffs into Lake Mohave, some in response to, “I dare you,” which could have been the same occurrence in this case.

Tattle on the Kids – It’s Time for Them to Pay
Our family was blessed.We always had a natural talent for weirdness that manifested itself at an early age in our offspring. One event comes to mind when two nephews were in a spitting contest. Their target was steaks broiling on the grill. Hit or miss, they were fascinated with the dancing bubbles or instant flash and angry hiss of charcoal briquettes. Their father had paid a large amount of his weekly salary for those steaks so he considered the boys had just tenderized them.
Another youngster was way ahead of the nightmare curve when he became convinced that Bigfoot was a clear and personal danger. At a campout, he grew increasingly agitated toward dusk. When asked what was wrong, he stated that in the past, Bigfoot had been seen near Flagstaff. He was reminded that he was 160 miles from Flag. His reply – “Do you know how fast Bigfoot can run? He can run down here and kill me and be back in Flagstaff by morning.”
Do you have that kind of faith in your antagonist?
