Here’s A Quick Way To Get Homework Done

“Mom…?”

“Yes…?”

(long silence)

“Brian…?”

“Yes…?”

“Did you want something?”

“Not really.”

(followed by another long silence)

“Mom…?”

“Yes…?”

“I… there’s this girl…”

“Oh…?”  (Big dry lump forming in this mother’s throat followed by lioness instinct to kill another young threatening female, followed by casual demeanor, as if nothing is wrong … except for the small twitching of right eyebrow…)

“Uh, well…”

(yet another long silence)

“We kinda held hands … in the library.”

“That’s nice dear…did you study too while you were there?”  ( A mother can always hope for study motivation even if it comes in the form of a girl)

“Yeah, she turned the pages and finish all my homework.  Mom…?”

(silence)

“Mom…?… you look kinda pale … are you alright?”

“Did I hear you say your homework is done?”

Until next time-

How To Get A Presidential Vote From Kids

“Mom?”

“Yes?”

“Remember to vote this week.”

“I haven’t forgotten for 29 years.”

“Yeah, but this one’s important.”

“They all are, son.”

“No … this one could mean the US could have a mom for a President.  No one messes with moms.”

“Damn straight Brian.”

“Think she would give us shorter school years?”

“Would I?”

“Not in a million years.”

“Exactly.”

“OK, then you don’t have to vote for her.”

Until next time-
