Jack: Why are you writing in code!!?? You know I can’t read that!
me: Sorry, I’m just making notes and this is the quickest way to write. I bet you can read it if you try very hard.
Jack: ARRRGGHH! Stop making R’s that look like N’s.
me: That’s what they look like. Here, I’ll show you the whole alphabet, slowly.
Jack: It all has to connect?
me: Um, I don’t think so, but I guess that’s how I learned to do it.
Jack: You mean someone TAUGHT you to do this? I thought old people were born knowing it.
