I learned the word pathetic when I was in grade 5 and my friend, Maureen, learned it - and used it - very often. We were in the gifted class together, so we found, errrrr...odd ways to amuse ourselves.
In case you don't actually know the word, pathetic, I thought I would give you a picture which defines it quite well. Here is baby guy in a photo taken a few days ago. Sigh.
