So, I learned tonight that, as a parent, one has to be just a little careful about what one blurts out in front of the spawn after a glass and a half of vino at dinner. We all piled into the car and headed out to get some ice cream, afterwards. As we were heading down the street, the old lady looked out at a well-manicured garden and said, "I should really plant some tulips." Well, I couldn't let that fucking lob fall to the ground, so I replied, "Well, I've got a suggestion where you can plant your tulips...." Yep, an oldie but a goodie... unless, of course, your kids are sitting right behind you.
The spawn didn't respond, so they either didn't hear me or they didn't get it. And judging by the Old Lady's response to my comment, I don't think I'm gonna get it either.
