Get Out the Hand Puppets


I called the house on my way home from work to ask The Kids to do a few things before I got home.

Me, talking to The Boy: “Do you think you can explain that to your sister or do you want to put her on the phone & I’ll tell her?”

The Boy: “I’m not sure. You know how it is trying to explain things to her. You have to draw pictures…. use hand puppets…”

How Much to Just Leave the Appliances Alone?


The Boy has given me a price list for chores:

Unloading the dishwasher: $0.75
Doing the laundry: $1.00
Washing the TV: $18.00

Says The Boy, “What? TVs are expensive.”
