Initial complications

Helping Elder Son with homework.  He was stuck on a problem.
After going over the same question several times, we had this conversation:

He:  IDK!
Me:  You decay?
He:  I don't know.
Me:  You don't know if you're decaying?
He:  No.  IDK.  I. Don't. Know.
Me:  Oh.  I thought you were rotten.

I don't know what it is with my kids but they don't want me using text "speak" on my text messages for them.


There is no understanding the workings of a teenagers brain.

Yep you are hip to the ways of the young people.

Now that's funny.

It reminds me of a conversation I overheard in a computer store once. The customer was looking at the nameplate of the computer and read aloud: "Fifty watts".

He then asked the sales clerk, "What's a watt?"

The clerk answered, "What?"

And the customer said, "Yeah!"
