Problems

"Mama," my eight-year-old son said.  "Everybody in this family seems to have a problem."

I tried not to laugh.  "Oh yeah, Bubba?  What kind of problems?"

"Schultz (our German Shepherd) is always dirty."

I nodded.  "Can't argue with that!"

"My sister is a drama queen."

Yep.

"Daddy doesn't have time to walk Schultz.  And I'm always hungry."

"What's my problem?" I asked.

"You're losing your mind!"

 Oy!

  2. I have a problem, but I can't remember what it is. Oh, yeah! I'm becoming old and forgetful.

    Love,

  4. Hah! Talk about being blunt! You can always scare him by saying it's hereditary, so he'll be losing his mind next. XD

  5. Don't feel bad. My daughter told me, "Mom, I hate to be the one to tell you this, but writers are lame." Later that night, she asked this lame writer to edit a paper for her. ;)
