I hate derogatory words and the word dumb is just one of those words. It actually means someone who is temporarily unable to speak, but most people use it to refer to someone who lacks any bit of intelligence. Well, unfortunately, it refers to me too well and for 2 reasons. One, because I broke down and ordered my son some drums again. He knows that after 3 days of lobbying I will break down. Two, because when he brought me the Amazon page for a mini drum set, I didn’t pay attention. After I ordered them my wife asked me how miniature they were so I looked them up. They were 8 inches by six inches. Do you think the word dumb is maybe too flattering?
