I'm not sure if was the manly legs or the fact that the Male Child willingly and ably does automobile repair (there is evidence to support multiple theories), but I got a surprising number of emails about the last post. So for those who expressed an interest, here's a little more about the Male.
Patience is necessary and a certain amount of speed for the Male Child is an elusive species and quick to escape.
Note the ease with which it moves about its native habitat
It is extremely well adapted with attenuated limbs and a lean and gracile build allowing it free movement through the branches of the trees it likes to call home.
When threatened with household chores or geometry it retreats with ease, back into the canopy.
