  • even though you're a buddhist, even though you're an old parent, you've lived at a meditation center, you've studied the dharma, aikido, poetry, yoga, etching, everything --- even though you've wandered aimlessly, lived in your VW van, been homeless, basically, you have a doctorate, you've followed your heart and all that crap, are you enlightened, thus, you have a little boy who loves MONSTER TRUCKS, who, thanks to an older stepbrother with THE complete game set up in his room, and MUCH better SAT scores than you or your also very geeky and sincere husband, your little BOY has figured out how to find shooting games on-line. This little boy might run havoc through the Bodhi School space and he might also be the loveliest one, the one who passes out the napkins before the snack feast with glamor, aplomb, with grace, humor like, style.
