Tony the Bad Boy

For a good stretch of time, about a week, Tony was a behaving like a good boy.  But then Saturday night at the public square near our apartment, he had a flop on the ground tantrum.  What happened was that another boy had a toy that Tony really liked.  Tony hijacked the toy, played with it for a while, and then  became very angry when he had to give it back.  He flopped down on the public square surface banging his head.  His mother and his father spanked and fought him.

It raised his father's ire when looking up from his struggles with Tony, he saw twenty or thirty Chinese staring at him -- Andis wanted to give them the mind-your-own-business bird.  Thankfully, he fought the urge.
