10 Things Children Should Never Do

  1. Snap your brace wire 15 minutes before the dentist's office closes and you live 14 minutes away.
  2. Snap your brace wire when mother is frantically trying to get dinner in the oven.
  3. Dump an entire basket of clean clothes on the floor to find one shirt.
  4. Leave the entire basket of clean clothes on the floor after the shirt is found.
  5. Call mother to say you will be home for dinner, call and say you will be with a friend instead. Call back and say you will be home, but can the "good" car be borrowed to go out for coffee because the van is simply too humiliating to be seen driving.
  6. Hang up on your mother when you do not like her rebuttal to above comment.
  7. Lose your glasses three days after new lenses have been ordered.
  8. Tell your mother there is "nothing to eat" after $244 worth of groceries have been purchased.
  9. Leave 4 or more peanut butter and jelly coated knives on the kitchen counter over the course of 4 hours.
  10. Tell your mother, "In a minute," when you are obviously time impaired.

Rant is over; amazing what turning a heel and picking up a few stitches can do for the mood.
