Big and Small

Last evening, Danny asked if I had any photographs from my field work. I do, but mostly they are photographs of artifacts, test pits, and survey equipment. Danny insisted he wanted to see them, so I located a photo album, and let him flip through.

Danny: (pointing) is that you?

Me: Yes, I sure was covered in mud, eh?

Danny: Was that the summer you had amoebic dysentery?

Me: Yes, it was.

Danny: I could tell, you look really small. (Flips through a few more pages to photographs from another site the following year) Well you didn't have any dysentery there, you were much bigger. Look how big you got...

Me: You're grounded until your fortieth birthday.
