Thinking I was clever today, I told my fourteen year old son that he could not use the laptop today until he had completed a chore. I gave him a choice between cleaning the disgusting bathroom or washing dishes. I figured he’d choose the bathroom as he washed dishes last night and bitched and moaned the entire time, stretching out a 10 minute job to just over two hours.

He chose dishes. So now that he’s rinsing up the last of them, I realize that I’m not that clever. And it’s not my turn.
