The Daily Insult . . .

. . . and for once, not aimed at me.

Primus and Secundus are brushing their teeth before school when Secundus remarks on the self-contradiction of a phrase he's heard: "individual team efforts." Seeing an educational opportunity for the smug parent, I leap in.

"Do you know what we call it . . "

"An oxymoron!" Primus anticipates gleefully. Not to be upstaged by a mere eleven-year-old,  I switch gears.

". . . when someone interrupts you before you even finish the question?"

"A moron!" says Secundus.
