Kids These Days

My daughter's boyfriend is here. Both "kids" are 18, neither one has a drivers' license (boyfriend's mom works an odd shift & picks him up at 9), and I think this is the first "serious" relationship for each of them.

Our house is fairly large, but it seems to shrink considerably when the boyfriend is over. Sunday he was here, too, and I busied myself doing laundry so that it wouldn't seem that I was trying to keep an eye on them.

As I walked upstairs with a basketful of clothes to put away, I couldn't believe my ears. Coming from the TV room was the unmistakable sound of . . .

Legos. They were playing with Legos.

I guess it's time for a talk.

  2. Keep your eye on them. Meccano sets are just a step away now...

  3. I wasn't aware that you speak Spanish. I hopeo usted are payingo attencion to whoseo lego was being playedo witho (Ok it'[s really Spanlish, as they speak in Miami).

  4. Si. Je parle espanol un poco.

    I try not to pay too much attention; that way I don't have to pretend I didn't see something.


And you thought...
