Coincidence

My first post on this blog related an anecdote about my younger son Henry that gave this blog its slightly odd title. Yesterday, i came across a page on the web that describes a Peanuts cartoon that is almost identical to that story (Linus makes the "these are my feet" declaration). My son was about 3 at the time he said it, so i can state with certainty that he had not seen this cartoon. Still, it was very strange to read this. I haven't been able to find the actual cartoon yet, but it supposedly appeared in a book called Here Comes Charlie Brown, so i hope to.

Indelably printed on my memory since childhood.
