"I Represent That Remark" Dept.

Just ran across an old Cathy Seipp article on the Modern Dad that includes this excellent observation:

"Now the problem here was that even though I could see this dad was reveling in his fab daditude, like many guys he found it difficult to do two things at once — like watch a child while chatting with another adult. Men in charge of small children are like women and parallel parking: Attention must be paid or something's going to get dented."

It would hardly be kind for me to mention that I had to emend "to do things at once" to "to do two things at once," evidence that Ms. Seipp's proofreader is apparently incapable of doing even one thing at once. So I won't.
