    I posted on a different thread and then thought that flew over your head fourteen times before you went that actually is....

    Things that flew over your head until someone explained it or you eventually got it.

    1.

    Why yes that is Aretha

    2. Captain Jack is about a heroin addict. Someone explained this to me.

    3. Puff the Magic Dragon. Well just never mind I was young and naive.

    Some guys told me that they went for a hike, and while they were hiking, somebody moved their car.

    They had to explain to me that that somebody "moving their car" was an indirect way of saying that they got lost.

    Some of you may remember hearing in John Prine song "little pitchers have big ears," which adults used to use to remind one another that a child may be eavesdropping on a sensitive conversation.

    That Shaggy and Scoobie were tokers. Loved that show, never thought of it until I was in Walmart and seen a Scoobie Doo DVD and a lady advised me they were evil

    Someone told me that “the rabbit done died” in the Aerosmith song Walk This Way was about his girlfriend being pregnant or avoiding a pregnancy.

    The rabbits were used as a test. Alive not, Dead pregnant.

    yep, that test and the jokes that were based on it? An indirect but probably reliable age indicator.

    the fact that I do not deserve love flew over my head for quite some time. after I figured that one out, things were a lot simpler

    First day of First Grade, the nun told us we need to bring a tablet to school tomorrow. I was like why do we need to bring a pill to school? Nobody told me a tablet is a notebook. No wonder I hated school.

    Johnny Cash. It took me a long time to really understand how special he was.

    My second grade teacher asked who would like to clean the erasers. I offered to do it and started to wash them in the sink. Everyone started laughing at me. Apparently, there was a vacuum machine for this and I was the only one who didn't know about it.

    2006: I learned that Paris Hilton was a person. I had heard the name for years but assumed it was a reality show about a hotel in France.

    I'm going literal with this one....

    I was camping with some buddies in the tail end of the Sierra Nevadas years ago up around an area near Lake Elizabeth. We spent the weekend mountain biking, rock climbing and swimming in the Kern River. One day we were mountain biking high up on a ridge above the canyon floor when all we heard were "whizzes" in the air around our heads.......ppppheeeeww, ppppheeeew. I was looking around wondering what it was until my buddy, familiar with guns, realized that bullets were passing all around us! "Hit the deck!" he yelled. We all dove off our bikes and crouched on the trail yelling "stop f'in shooting!!!" We had no idea where it was coming from so after it stopped for a spell, we got on our bikes and rode out of there like bats out of hell.

    Jazz. It wasn't until I watched Ken Burns' documentary that I finally got it. Well, sort of anyway.

    Seems like poor self esteem to me. Your kids love you because you're a good dad, right? Don't let that kind of stuff escape you.

    Talkin more like romantic mush love, not love from your kids. They kinda gotta do that, along with your folks :)

    Nah. Ask any of my exes, they'll tell you.

    If I knew how to deserve it, I would, if I could. But I don't, by consensus, so I've learned to accept that.

    Your exes thought you deserved love at some point, or they wouldn't have given it to you. Accepting and expecting love could be the problem rather than deserving it.

    Don't get too hung up on anything I say. I'm a first class a-hole, but you seem like a decent guy. Don't forget that. :)
