The Ladybird Book of the Policeman

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

The Ladybird Book of the Policeman in the new, UPDATED version is not exactly your everyday children’s reference book, unless you just happen to live in the Twilight Zone.

From the same series of updated classics as How it Works: Surfing for Porn, My First Joint, and People At Work: The Benefit Cheat, it’s aimed at very young children. Well, let me be more specific: it’s aimed at very young children who are, or would like to become, seriously twisted. Put it on the shelf between your collected works of Samuel Beckett and your back copies of McSweeney’s.

The First of Many, I’m Sure…

The phone rang, and I automatically glanced at the LCD display to see who it was. Don’t we all?

Oh, a mom friend of mine, one whose daughter is in the Munchkin’s class. Fabulous! What gossip does she have to dish out to me today?

Instead of mom, though, I hear a rather breathless, “Hello, this is Cutest Little Girl in the World and is the Munchkin home and may I speak with him?”

Thrown for a bit of a loop, I walk over to where the Munchkin is sitting. He is engrossed in his newest obesssion, which is an old Scooby-Doo movie where Scoob and the gang meet Batman. I think he pretty much has all the lines memorized at this point.

I hand him the phone with a chirpy, “You have a phone call!”

And ever the clueless male, he continues to watch the television until I make him pause it. He then chatters rather aimlessly for about a minute and a half, and they hang up. Something about chocolate chip cookies was communicated, that I know for sure. The rest is anyone else’s guess.

So he says goodbye and hangs up the phone. Instantly, he turns the television back on. No big deal. Just a blip on his radar screen.

And all I can think to myself is awwwwwwww, he just got his first phone call from a girl!


Oh crap! He just got his first phone call from a girl!

I am so not ready for this!
