“You should have had Mom watch ’em, Dad.”


This morning over our granola:

LAD: Did the Indians win, Dad?

ME: (looking at the computer, mumbling) No, they lost, four to nothing.

(silence for about a minute)

LAD: I know why the Indians lost, Dad.

ME: (waiting)

LAD: I think the Indians lost because you watched ’em, Dad. You should have just had Mom watch ’em. Make sure you don’t watch the Browns tonight, Dad.


Thanks, dear reader, should you ever find me, for being my gadfly.
