Cartoon today

There is this cartoon in our paper called Cul De Sac, it’s about a bunch of preschool kids, who often are a lot like kindergarten kids. Today the dad is reading a bedtime story to the little girl.

He says, “Once upon a time.”

The little girl says, “Hey Dad! This will be practice for when you read to my class! I’ve piled all my toys here like they’re listening to you! See how they stare unblinkingly, their eyes boring into you. just waiting for you to make a mistake!”

He says, “Is your class this tough a crowd?”

She says, “Heck no! we never pay attention to anything for more than five seconds.”

They say that generally, you can count on an attention span something like one minute for every year old a child is…..
