In which the boy tells a story, and we wonder what the teacher thinks [Feb. 26th, 2008|10:27 pm]
The Boy apparently had to write a story about a time when he got in trouble. Below is the result (translation to follow)

I lied to my Mom and locked my Daddy outside! 
Where were you? At home.
Who was with you? Nobody was with me.
When did this happen? A long time ago.
What punishment did you receive? I received a yelling punish.

Now, I vaguely remember The Boy locking Husband outside and then claiming he didn't do it. But I don't remember him getting in trouble for it. I mean, we lock ourselves out of the house all the time. Although I think this particular time Husband might have been in his underwear, but I'm not sure because I don't really know why Husband would be outside in his underwear. And I'm sure if I did know then, the reason I don't know now is because I have blocked it out of my memory out of some sense of self preservation.

When The Boy showed this story to Husband, he explained that he didn't want the teacher to think that we yelled all the time, so he asked her if, instead of writing that he got a yelling punishment, he could just write that he got a spanking. The teacher asked him if he got a spanking, and The Boy said no, so the teacher told him it would be better if he just wrote what really happened.

Have I mentioned how glad I am that this teacher has been teaching for over twenty years?

what's the guy on the left holding and where did the guy on the right go for vacation to get that killer tan?

And is everyone in your family without hair and digits?

It seems like that assignment is just asking for stories to embarrass the parents.

He totally cracks me up!

I love how the door handle is depicted so huge and inviting, as if to say, "Hey, kid. C'mere."

Heck, I want to lock it myself!

And I love the words, "yelling punish." I could eat that kid up with a spoon!
