Allan: While true, your article got the grandson a little on edge this morning. Here’s how our conversation went:

Joey, unfamiliar with bootlickers
Questioned if these were city slickers
I said, “They’re taxpayer trickers.”
Aghast he asked, “Get in our knickers?”
“If not that,” I added, “At least pocket pickers.”
Joey responded, “What a bunch of prickers!”

Then he farted, grabbed my hand, and we went to the park!
