I’m Sure My Son Isn’t TRYING to Make Me Insane…

So this is basically how our morning went…

Me (pointing at a photo of people shaking Joe Biden’s hand on the front page of the newspaper): Hey, look — if I would’ve gone to the Biden event yesterday, that could’ve been me.

Newt: You’re in there?

Me: No, I could’ve gone. And my friend had tickets for me that would’ve gotten me really close — like that.

Newt: So you went?

Me: No. I didn’t go. I didn’t want to go this time. It’s just kind of a pain, and I didn’t want to do it. But if I did, I would’ve been close enough to Biden to shake his hand.

Newt: Oh.

Few minutes later. Newt, looking at the paper: Hey look! It’s Joe Biden!

Skips off to brush teeth. I put a permanent palm mark on my forehead from slapping it so hard. Elfie looks at me and shakes her head. Leaves to brush her teeth.

Tenzin: You know, the only thing that keeps me from stressing out that there may be something “wrong” with him is that whenever I spend time with other boys his age, they’re just as screwed up, inattentive, and bonkers as he is.

Me: How is it possible that women don’t run the world? I mean, seriously. Is it just some deal throughout the ages where you guys get big and beat us up so we don’t stand a chance? Because we’re clearly smarter.

Tenzin: I’d agree with you if it weren’t for all those women voting for Romney. They throw the whole thing off.

Me: Good point.

Brilliant. At least he knows who Biden is.

Good point. I guess I should lay off him.

Love it! I am pretty sure I could have the same conversation with my eldest…maybe it is a nine year old thing, because she is a girl!

Yeah, but the two of them have their heads in the clouds. Always have!

Partially age, partially gender- I have one just as aloof.

At least he knows who Biden is…..many adults don’t.
