A Word about John

Nov 26, 2005 by

John, my beloved 16-year old son, is bugging the crap out of me.

He is theoretically grounded, but as I am the Wussy Mom, I did let him go out to see his friend on his birthday. That one exception somehow translated to “Oh, I guess I’m not grounded any more.” So last night after work, he decided to play. Who knows what time he got home, but I do know that it was before it snowed.

How do I know this?

Because he left the sunroof open and the car outside of the garage. I promise a photo, because inspite of being so mad I could have beaten him senseless (oh wait… he is already senseless) I did see the humor in it and insited that Brent take a picture of my car filled with snow.

Brent, in his ultimatumish way declared that “JOHN WILL NEVER DRIVE AGAIN”. I merely realized that tomorrow he is finally being ordained a Priest, and You Know Who is chewing on him pretty bad. Is it any wonder that this Wunder Kind is acting like some changeling?

I hope that after the broo-ha-ha of ordaining him is done that the original John will return, and the house will be peaceful again.

  1. Guess I got Harry Potter on the mind b/c when you wrote ‘You Know Who’ I immediately thought of Voldemort. Got confused and had to start it over.

    I’d say don’t be too hard on the kid. When I was 16, I wrecked my dad’s car. Freeway, airbags, and ambulances–the whole bit. Fortunately, we were all fine. Unfortunately, the car was totaled. To this day he still tells me I owe him a car.

    Ah, man. Big bad not-so-smart moment for the awesome John! Well, we all have a few rattling around the memories. Tell him i still think he’s about the coolest 16-year-old I ever did meet and he’ll probably get even hotter chicks when he starts telling the story ;)
