To say a child grows like a weed
Is rather unfair to the kid.
While children eventually do move out,
I’ve never seen a weed that did.
We weed and weed, and still we weep. Oregon is where noxious plants settle to raise their families. They move in and holler “Sanctuary! Sanctuary!” whenever we start pulling them up. We feel so sorry for them and their little tykes, we just don’t have the heart to—yeah, you’re not buying that, are you? Would you believe we have terrible allergies? No? Hmmm. At least they’re all organic.
