Master blaster

This morning on the way to work I noticed an unusual number of young daughters perched atop their daddies' shoulders. Like, there were five or six such parings within three blocks.

While cute, it's also suspicious. There aren't as many young couples on my block as there are up the way in Noe Valley. And, you have to ask yourself, what do all those little beady eyes need to see from way up there.

Now I'm at work and whaddya know if a little girl doesn't come prairie-dogging around the corner astride her dad. Take Your Daughter to Work Day is in April so I think we can eliminate any casual explanation for this.

The only rational conclusion is that the invasion has begun. Aim for the eyes and pray you hit the power center.
