The logic of video games was pretty simple, and utterly false, when I was 12 years old and playing "Super Mario Bros." on Nintendo. The "logic" began when the game cartridge wouldn't work, and blowing on the insides usually fixed it. Nothing else in real life is this simple. I have never blown air on a broken toaster and thought that it would work.

Through some odd twist of circumstances, Ford, my oldest son, and I were the only ones home for the night. This almost never happens, and now that Ford is almost 15, I decided we should watch a movie – a PG-13 movie – that we normally could not when Ford’s younger brothers are around.
