My kid told his teacher that he drinks beer with his dad


That Marley and Me movie made me " Sensitive." Now I am back to me. The pissy half drunk Bobby everybody missed.

Anyway, My kid told his teacher that he drinks beer with his dad. My 1st question to myself is where did I go wrong? Do I drink too fuckin much? As a write this I have had 2 Captain & Coke's. Not too bad. Although I am alone. maybe I'm a loser? (That's a later blog...back on topic.)

My kid told his teacher that he drinks beer with his dad.



Upon hearing this over the phone comment from my wife my first instinct was to laugh out loud about this situation. Then I was whacked in the face by the realization of where I live. I live in America. America is by far the best country on earth (At least that's what I think since I've only been to Mexico, Great Britain, and Canada - yet more blog topics for the future). Anyway, America is the best, however, we are sooooo politically correct that this situation with my son could get serious if not dealt with.

My kid told his teacher that he drinks beer with his dad. This situation makes me harken back to my feeling that I should have been born in the 1940's. If somebody (in the 1940's) told you, "My kid told his teacher that he drinks beer with his dad." 99% of people would laugh, light up a stogy and go on with the next topic.

Here is the difference today. 99% of people laugh, but they do not go on to the next topic so easily. Every one's next thought pattern goes to how you are going to deal with this situation so it doesn't happen again, because God Forbid anyone take a fuckin joke. I mean, what if Susie Teacher decides to turn you in? What if Susie Teacher thinks it is true? What if Susie Teacher takes the 5 year old's joke seriously.

That's what is soo f-ed up in America right now. We are all soo scared and politically correct that we can't even see the obvious situation soo clearly in front of our faces. The 5 year old is f-ing with you. It is a joke. He gets it, why can't the rest of us. The reason is, he is not jaded by our politically correct society yet. Guess what, I'm gonna do my best to make sure he never loses that sense of humor that is unwavered by the fear. You know what fear I speak of.

My kid told his teacher that he drinks beer with his dad. My first instinct was to laugh out loud about this situation. I think I'll stick to that.

  1. This is VERY funny and well put. The other lesson in this (as you mentioned) is that kids usually have it right...honesty, humor and (most of the time) universal kindness. I love you and your amazing talent :)
