Max (age 9): Reuben, I can teach you how to handle bullies.
Max: If someone is bothering you, just say to them, ‘Do you consider yourself a worthy opponent?’
Me: THAT’S what you are suggesting a kindergarten kid should say??
Max: Trust me, it works. Then ask them what 12 divided by 4 is.
Me: Math for bullies? He’ll get beat up for sure… Wait a minute… what is your angle here?
Max: Hee hee.
