Boy, n.: a noise with dirt on it.

A boy is Truth with dirt on it’s face,
Beauty with a cut on its finger,
Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair,
and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket.

Dirty little monster.

Today’s impromptu park play date with some friends was chocked full of rock climbing, stick-throwing, dirt-slinging, cicada-hunting fun.

Nick was filthy and oh-so-tired by the time we got home. Luckily his comfy bed was waiting for him.

Question: Is there anything more natural than a boy exploring his world, to heck with the mess?
