A message from The Historian.
In 8th grade, the class would travel to Washington D.C. on vacation. Father would chaperone the trip - keeping watch over Fodder the entire time.
To Fodder’s humiliation, Father would see everything; he would see Fodder’s terrible group of friends, he would see that Fodder was a loser, he would see that Fodder never really interacted with anyone.
But he would do nothing. He would say nothing. He would never acknowledge that Fodder was anything other than a normal child.
He would never reflect Fodder back at Fodder.
Thus, Fodder would never learn to change.
Because Father never changed.

If a DC-10 ever fell on your head and you’re
Laying in the ground all messy and dead
Or a Mack truck ran over you
Or you suddenly die in your Sunday pew
Do you know where you’re gonna go?
