Junkyard

Thursday, February 12th, 2009

Last night after his shower he asked if we could go to the junkyard. “Why?” I said. “So we can see the kitchen boom box.” (He’s had four boom boxes so far. I threw away the one in the kitchen. It didn’t work.) “Did you throw away the kitchen boom box?” “Uh-huh.” “We can see it at the junkyard. We can go see all the stuff we throwed away.”

My wife came home from her support group. She told me when they’re teenagers M&M’s don’t cut it. “They don’t?” “Neither do cookies,” the bribes we give our son. She said that when they’re teenagers sometimes they still need their baby blankets. Solution? Cut off a piece of the blanket and stick it in their wallets.

It’s as much about keeping as it is about throwing out.
