File Under

Conversations I Never Expected to Have:

The Kid and I have both picked up a head cold, here at the start of the fall semester...

Th kid, passing through the front room, and by my desk, sheds a used tissue, idly, on the bookcase by my desk.

Me: Hey!

The kid: (innocently): What?

Me: Here's a quiz for you. When you're done with a tissue, what do you do with it? (a) Save it for your baby book (b) Leave it on the bookcase because everyone wants to admire your used tissues (c)---

The kid: I wasn't done with it. I was going to use that tissue some more.

Me: Go and throw it away and do it NOW.

The kid: (rolls eyes)
