So, as we were driving the kids home from swim lessons this morning, we were talking about words and ... well, that different families use different words.
Me: And that's why, in their house, they don't use the word "stupid." But in our house, you can ... as long as you're not calling a person stupid. You can use it to describe someone's actions or a situation ... or Congress.
[Silence from the kids]
Mom: [leans a little toward me] Don't worry, honey. I got it.
Me: Thanks, Mom.
Yeah. What would I do without her?
My sense of humor is often wasted on the under-14 set.
