Dad’s Game Plan

| USA | Related | December 17, 2013

(I’m seven. My family’s just about to leave from watching my sister’s soccer practice. Since I think soccer’s boring, I have passed the time by playing her friend’s Game Boy. Now I’m jealous and I want one very badly. My parents are notoriously cheap, and never got us kids anything except socks and underwear for Christmas.)

Me: *excited* “Dad! You know what you can get me for Christmas?”

Dad: “What?”

Me: “A Game Boy!”

Dad: “No way.”

Me: *whining* “Why not?”

Dad: “Your grades haven’t been good.”

Me: “They’re average! Nothing wrong with being average. At least they’re not bad. C’mon, Dad. Please?”

Dad: “No. And, besides…”

Me: “Besides what?”

Dad: “It’s not made for you.”

Me: “Huh?”

Dad: “It’s called a Game BOY. It’s made only for boys.”

Me: “DAD!”

Dad: “If they come out with a Game Girl, I’ll get you one of those.”

Blind Leading The Blind

(My seven-year old dog is going blind, and has a habit of getting under our feet and tripping us up. I’m cooking when I hear my dad, behind me, trip over her.)

Dad: “[Dog’s Name]! I didn’t see you there! I guess you didn’t see me, either…”

The Perfect Problem

Niece: “Auntie, it is not fair. For the third time in a row, I could not improve my math quiz!”

Me: “Well, honey, if you did not understand something you need to ask for help. We are all here for you.”

Niece: “I understand it alright.”

Me: “Then what is the problem?”

Niece: “I got everything right each time, so I cannot do better!”

Me: “Honey, there are a lot of kids who would very much like to have your problem.”
