Raising my kids Amish

An acquaintance mentioned how she agrees with my recent work blog entry where I compare modern entertainment with man-eating lion escapades in the Roman Coliseum.
She remarked that it must be difficult, as a parent, deciding whether or not to let young children watch the evening news on TV or surf the internet.

“That's why I’m raising my kids Amish,” I told her.
“I don’t believe you,” she replied. “What, you just went through the house one day and yanked out all the electrical?”
“Nothing that drastic. I just make them go to school shoeless.”

That is funny!

Oh, thank you, Priscilla!

I was beginning to think the only people who would get that joke are Amish, and you know how many of them read blogs.
