I didn’t have time to watch Monty Python when I was a kid. I was too busy at school 8 hours a day, walking there and back for 4 hours each way, chores on the farm for 8 more hours, homework for 8 more hours, then a quick bite of supper and off to bed.

I grew up in Central Florida, USA. I walked to and from school in the snow. It was uphill both ways.

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, where we had to battle alligators in the creek to fetch fresh water for Mom to use to boil our gravel for breakfast. Unless the volcano was erupting, when we’d just eat the fresh-boiled pumice floating down the stream.

I grew up in Antarctica. After nearly being eaten by a polar bear too many times, I moved close to the North Pole. It was not that much better there, being pecked by penguins every week.
