"The Black Panic, That's What Woke Me; That All Too Familiar Blend Of Terror And Heinousness That Buzzed Beneath My Skin Where No Eye Could Detect It And No Scalpel Could Dig It Out, Where It Would Remain Until I Exorcised It Out Of Me. Last Night's Memories Were Making Their Entrance."

My son, Sam, at three and a half, had these keys to a set of plastic handcuffs, and one morning he intentionally locked himself out of the house. I was sitting on the couch reading the newspaper when I heard him stick his plastic keys into the doorknob and try to open the door. Then I heard him say, "Oh, shit." My whole face widened, like the guy in Edvard Munch's Scream. After a moment I got up and opened the front door."Honey," I said, "what'd you just say?""I said, 'Oh, shit,'" he said."But, honey, that's a naughty word. Both of us have absolutely got to stop using it. Okay?"He hung his head for a moment, nodded, and said, "Okay, Mom." Then he leaned forward and said confidentially, "But I'll tell you why I said 'shit.'" I said Okay, and he said, "Because of the fucking keys!"
