Jahx That would 85% of my students on any given day.
Nathan Why do you think I can’t stand children?
Jahx Why? Because they won’t change the subject?
Nathan No, because they’re fanatical. Dangerous creatures, children are. You turn your back on them and they’ll swarm you. They can bring a fully grown man to his knees in a matter of seconds with a well-aimed rock.
Jahx Although that’s possible, I don’t think it’s likely. There’d be severe repercussions for rock throwing on my grounds.
Nathan What? You mean it’s never happened to you? I’d have thought that it happens all the time, since you live with the little skunks. You must sleep with one eye open.
Jahx Right. That’s what I do. So what have you planned for the Spring Festival this year?
Nathan Sticky! And noisy. And they smell like mud and spoiled milk.
Jahx What does?
Nathan Children! Nasty creatures! Can’t stand em. Any idea how many waistcoats all those sticky fingers have ruined? Not to mention the hours of my life I’ll never get back having to listen to them go on and on and on and on about nothing at all, and they repeat themselves! My word! Awful creatures, the stinky little mongrels.
Catherine Sorry, I thought you said your students were the fanatics, Jahx?
Jahx Clearly I was mistaken.
