New Realization

Sometimes we are amused by, even surprised at, a different realization of a familiar fact. Last week, for example, I was dressing after swimming at the civic center, when a father and his young son came into the locker room. The boy must have been about 4 and was excited about going to the pool, so he wanted to show his father his newfound way to doff his shirt: by pulling the shirt down over his shoulders and waist rather than over his head. Ah, yes, a young child's head is larger with respect to the rest of his body than is an adult's.
