a pathetic little blog
Where we live there is a chain of sporting goods stores called Chick’s. Where we used to live there was a sporting good stores called Dick’s. Recently Dick’s bought out Chick’s… let’s hear it for Chick’s with Dick’s!
Today just before I went into Petsmart and got suckered into a 20 gallon starter aquarium, I spied a Chick’s store nearby and since clearance prices were up to 75% off I headed for it with my three daughters and son. My 10 year old son was clever and pretended not to be interested in shopping by saying, “But I’m a guy!” I was quick to retort that it would soon be Dick’s and then entirely relevant to a young man. He giggled because he got the joke. My 8 year old daughter didn’t. She asked for clarification by asking loudly, “Well? I don’t get it. What’s a DICK?” And then I had to explain that it was another word for penis and I was entirely unclear on the origin. She was now confused… “Do you mean that g-pap pap’s mother named him after a PENIS? EW!” I could only explain that back in the 1920s words meant different things. Or that maybe great-great grandma had a wicked sense of humor.
