JACKSON'S CHECK-UP ...!
It turns out that my father isn't the only one in the family keeping the doctors busy these days. My nephew, Jackson, now 18-months, went in for a check-up this week, during which an Enterprising Young Medical student was called-in to test his vocabulary. The Medical Student began by pointing at various parts of Jackson's body and asking him to name them. He worked his way from eyes, ears, nose and mouth to arms, hands and fingers. He continued on to feet, toes, knees and legs and finally worked his way back up to Jackson's personal favorite, the belly button. The Medical Student, satisfied with Jackson's progress, jotted a few notes on his notepad and prepared to go along his merry way. But to Jackson, at least, it was clear that the student needed an anatomy lesson of his own. "Penis!," Jackson yelled with a mischievous smile, "Under diaper! ... And Tushy, too!"
