True Story

When 5-year-old Kindergartener Anonymous came out of school today, he saw Fr. A. reading something on a Kindle.  The following exchange ensued:

"Hi, Daddy!  What are you reading on your reading machine?" 
"The Parson's Handbook, by Percy Dearmer."
"What's that?"
"It's a book about how to do the things that pastors do."
Long pause.
"Hmmm.  Maybe I should hear that ... when I'm 13."

The randomly-chosen high number is Kindergartener A.'s way of putting a thing off indefinitely.
