Football Funny


Five days a week I get the
splendid opportunity to drive
my teenage son to and from Football.
Five opportunities times two
for us to chit chat about
what is up with him.
He is seatbelted in,
I can choose how fast or slow we get there.
I can even take a new route if
I feel we have so much more to
say to one another...

NOT!!!

He has those big Skullcandy earphones
that BLOCK OUT PARENTAL ADVICE
SUGGESTIONS, and INQUIRIES!!!

Each day as I drive him I
pat him on the leg to get his attention:

He removes ONE ear phone:
"Hey Bud, How was school?"

"Fine"

Phones back on...
Me patting his leg...

ONE phone off:
"How is your homework going?

"Fine"

Phones back on...
Me patting his leg...

ONE phone off:
"Do you have plans for the weekend?"

"IDK yet"

Phones back on...
Me patting his leg...

ONE phone off:
"Did you get your chores done?"

"Yeah"

Phones back on....


Finally this Tuesday when I was
going through the usual motions with him...


He turned to me and said:

"MOM,
I CAN READ YOUR MIND!!!"



Me: Really?


Still makes me smile to think....
he turned to me and said...
"Hey, you could blog that!!!"

I am just impressed that you use terms like "IDK" and know what they mean. You should see me try to text and I have no short cuts, just misspelled words. If you can "IDK" then I am sure he can read your mind!

“You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences.” ~Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley
