Steamed Neocolonialism

The Boy is reading When Parents Text. He just appeared in my study....

The Boy: I just thought I'd share this one... (p. 33)
DAD: ...Mom made soft rice & steamed neocolonialism.
DAD: Broccoli
Me: They both probably go down better steamed.

(As his just desserts for invading my study, I made him read the piece I'm presently working on, which includes the term somatic proprioception.1

1. how your brain knows where your nose is when your eyes are closed


  1. Hey, that's cool! It DOES know where my nose is.

  2. Proprioception is a funky sense indeed.
