One of my Dad's favorite expressions was, "You must have been hiding behind the barn when the brains got handed out."
I never really understood why someone would hide in order to avoid brains. But I got the point. I always seemed to miss something important.
I knew by the age of 15 that I must have been hiding behind the barn when the boobies got handed out.
And there have been lots of cultural changes that seemed to have happened while I was behind the barn.
For instance, I seem to have missed that moment in time when spaghetti became pasta. And:
- When did potatoes become starch? When did meat become protein?
And -- at the risk of getting too serious (which I almost never am):
- When did warfare become conventional?
