And suppose that you lived in that forest in France
where the average young person just hasn’t a chance
to escape from the perilous pants-eating-plants!
But your pants are safe! You’re a fortunate guy.
- Dr. Seuss, DID I EVER TELL YOU HOW LUCKY YOU ARE?
P.S. This actually is my least favorite Dr. Seuss book, because I am, by nature, a complainer, and I disapprove of the whole other-people-are-way-worse-off-than-you-so-don’t-complain-just-appreciate-what-you-have thing, because of course other people are way worse off, but that has nothing to do with me complaining about something that is complaint-worthy. I firmly believe in complaint-worthiness as a fixed scale, not a relative one. That said, I really love pants-centric humor.
