Mother (so proud) on the way home from the Art Show in which both of her boys had pieces displayed: “See? You should take more art classes. You are both good at it.”
Son #1: I don’t need art classes, because art is inside of me.
Son #2 (in mock complaining tone): Mom, he is talking all free thinking and stuff.
Dad (to son #1): Are you trying to say that you have to fart?
Son #1: Actually, I just did.
Mom: Laughs hysterically because she knows she’s outnumbered. Says a prayer that she will never be acculturized.
Just a tiny peek into my world, friends :). Don’t pity me. I’m holding out hope for granddaughters one day.
