Conversation

AL: "Mom, remember when I asked for help with my reading homework and you gave me the answer?"

Me: "Yes."

Al: "Well, it was wrong. It was 'bait', not 'freight.'"

Me: "Oh?"

AL: "But I don't feel bad for you. Hunter's mom got it wrong too."

Me: "Gee, thanks."

Al: "I meant, don't FEEL bad. Cuz you got it wrong."

Me: "Right."

LP: (laughing) "Yes, she won't feel bad about getting YOUR homework wrong!"

Rug: "Oh, yeah that's is just CLASSIC."

Me, LP, Al: ?

Ummm, I just got a question...I just happened to look over there on the sidebar and inquiring minds want to know...what's a "sock monkey"?

sock monkeys? They are all over the place. They're the monkeys made out of socks with the big fat red lips. They're terrifying.

That's definitely a perk to motherhood. You answer incorrectly, but really, you are always right. Because you are always "mom." At least that's the card my mom frequently played, and the one I intend to play someday, too.

"Mom, what's 4x2?"

"12."

"Isn't it 8?"

"Nope. It's 12."

"I think it's 8, mom."

"Listen, I'm your mother. And I say it's 12. Trust me."

Oh, the trickery there shall be. ; )

Of course. Everybody knows that "bait" always follows "jail."
