    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    I've got a sore nose...

    I was teaching my 8yo son the classic Dempsey "Falling Step" straight
    punch.

    We were working on thrusting out with the fist first and then following
    through with a step. I was letting him sock me in the gut and he was
    beginning to get the hang of it, really getting some pretty good power
    (for an 8yo) when, wham. His "scamp" streak asserts itself. He decides
    to change targets. Socks me right in the nose. Rocked my head back and
    actually bloodied it just a little bit (not a gusher, but still, blood
    counts). Against another 8yo, he'd have totally plastered his boxing
    opponent; taken him off his feet. Not bad at all for someone < 45
    pounds.

    Egad I love being a Dad! :-)

    Can't wait to start teaching Bowie to my daughter. Maybe I'll ship her
    off to Maestro Loriega for a bit of navaja (what's the feminine navaja
    called? Sevilinia or something like that?).

    Anyway, this is the best feeling sore nose I've ever had. :-)

    Peace favor your sword,

    Just be glad he went up instead of down.

    My brother's first right cross was bittersweet.
