Being a responsible parent , you are encouraged to give your kids a pat on the back for getting 100% on a test or homework. Normally I give The Boy violent threats, to get him motivated to do good in school. Nothing out of the ordinary, just
if u don't pass this test, I will kill the dog
if u don't do your homework, I will cut your pinkie off
if u don't do pass this test I will drill a hole in your skull..
and yadda yadda yadda...
So he did a very tricky thing to me...He asked me if he got 100 on his spelling test Friday, if I would take him to see this..
Being the wretched mom I am, I have taken him to see every Spider Man movie since they have been coming out. So why should he think we would not be going?
He does not get the fact I can not walk, let alone hobble down a dark movie aisle with a mega popcorn and a ultra big dt coke...It wont happen...I will spill it. Hell no, I am not going to risk it.
So I told him we would go ONLY if he got 100 on his test.
All day, I kept hoping that just THIS ONE time he would get one wrong. I was actually wishing for my kid to flunk. Who the hell does that?
So while I was at work, I kept thinking about it, when it got to be 3 o'clock I called home, to see if he passed.
Of course, he did.
hello kid, did u see my damn foot and ankle? hello? am I invisible?
so, tonight I took him to see it. And we walked there. Now my ankle is hurting worse then ever..
Its ok, I have popped about 4 Vicoden since I been home...its all good now..Don't fret.
I must say though, it was a pretty great movie..I have seen all three Spiderman movies in the big cinema...And this one, is by far the best ever.
And according to the boy..and I quote..
this was the best movie I have ever seen, and not only, but its the best action movie ever, even better then Star Wars Episode 3...
so that's his review of it, and no, he is not a professional movie critic, hard to believe I know.
Anyway, my ankle is healing nicely, I have some feeling back in my toes, and the swelling has went down enough where I can get socks on..
things are looking up for ole Bossy.
My dog is not knocked up
My son is smart, even when i want him to flunk
My ankle is healing
Mr shaky is talking to me again, only cuz the dog isn't with children
I did not spill my popcorn at the show
Its hot outside
See, things are looking up...
Oh and there is a city wide garage sale Saturday. I have never really been garage saleing before..
I am looking for some treasures.
Hopefully I don't buy anything that has lice of flea eggs in it.
My luck can not be good forever.
Have a great weekend..
