“Daddy, I’m bored.”
“You’re bored? Here. I’ll tell you a story. When I was a kid, my dad had a set of 1963 World Book Encyclopedias. An encyclopedia was a set of books. There were about 27 of them in all and they were supposed to give you an ‘encyclopedic’ amount of information, which means they tried to include all the information you could ever hope to ask. So you’d look things up like you would in a dictionary, but instead of just telling you what a word meant, it would tell you all about that thing or place or person.
