My laugh of the day...
Yesterday the television was on and Merv Griffin's Crosswords game show was playing. Zachary watched for a minute, then asked with a confused look on his face:
"Mom, why are there grown moms and dads on this show spelling words? Didn't they go to school?"
It was really hard not to say something like:
"Well, Son, I guess it's time you knew. The truth is, if you don't do well in school or if you stop going, then when you're an adult you will be forced to appear on a television game show to spell words in front of a live studio audience for all the world to see! Scary, isn't it? So that's why you need to stay in school...and uh...don't do drugs, okay?"
Bwah ha ha ha ha!
You know, it's not a bad idea, though, is it? A reality show called, "High School Dropout" that is totally mandatory for anyone who doesn't graduate from high school? Talk about being scared straight!
Stay in school, Kids!
