The Best Kept Secret In America

“Brian, what happened to your computer grade?”

“I dunno.”

“How did it drop a full grade?”

“The teacher just walks by me.”

“Walks by you?”

“Yeah.”

“What does that mean?”

“I dunno.”

“Do you need help with anything?”

“What do you mean?”

“Are you lost in the class?”

“What class?”

“Computers!”

“I dunno. I sit by myself.”

“Why?”

“I dunno.”

“Can you ask the teacher?”

“He won’t tell me.”

“Why?”

“I dunno.”

“Will you be able to bring it back up again?”

“Yeah.”

“Soon?”

“We were doing Excell but now we’re on to something else.”

“So the grade will get better.”

“It already is. I finished my project.”

“Why didn’t you tell me that in the first place?”

“I dunno.”

Until next time -

Warning: We Turn Into Our Parents

My parents grew up during the Great Depression.

This should explain a lot to us kids, but it still doesn’t stop us from begging mom to throw out ice cream that has been in the freezer since Brian took his first steps.  My parents saved and recycled everything.  My mom still recycles plastic bags, and not only does she recycle them, but she rolls them into these neat little balls which store them nicely in a special basket in her pantry.

I like thinking I am not like my parents.

Until my son points out his argument by yelling, “Mom, when are we going to ever get rid of this stupid thing?!”

“Does it still work?”

“Barely . . . “

“Well then, we can still use it.”

“But Mom . . . it looks stupid!”

“Then don’t look at it.”

Old lamp my son hates

Oh dear God, I have become my parents.

Until next time -
