The Dads are gathered at the playground. The football talk gets old. The Dads get bored. And, in a moment that will live forever in infamy, a bet is placed. Violence ensues.
It’s toddler against toddler. Friend against friend. Pigtails versus Afro.
A command is given. Each fighter is instructed to “hug” her “friend”. There can be only one survivor. One champion.
One of the contenders, let’s call her The Obedient Child, has superior listening skills and the ability to follow directions. The other competitor, let’s call her The Disobedient Child, fails to heed the command due to a fondness for personal space (and a blatant disregard for authority) . . .
The Disobedient Child goes down. Hard. (see title).
Then, in an end no one saw coming, the competitors go ride a dinosaur.
