Ah, the great wisdoms one can impart on little kids! Sometimes it makes you feel smart, because you know so much more about the world, but more often than not they can bring you to the point of despair and frustration, because you start out answering a simple question (“How does the water know to flow into the drain?”), and then the follow up series of “why”s lead you towards trying to explain gravity and dark matter. I think there’s a Louis CK bit about that.

Anyway, today’s strip reminded me of some manly wisdom I recently tried to pass on to my son, about how to check the direction of the wind before peeing somewhere outside. We’re still working on that concept though. Once we mastered that, we’ll move to the next level of not dropping your pants all the way down to the ankles, but one step at a time!
