Sarcasm: the gift that keeps on giving

I either need to:
a) stop saying sarcastic things (Yeah, like that's gonna happen.) or
b) stop saying sarcastic things around young children. Because children repeat everything you say. Over and over and over.

All I'm saying is I probably shouldn't have called the UPS guy a "flippin' genius" for leaving my boxes out in the snow yesterday because that has become the insult du jour around these parts.

Wonderful.

Sarcasm is just horrible. I would never every use it, especially around children.

Or the punk ass kids I teach in anger management. Or my coworkers. Or my husband.

Isn't it a shame that sarcasm is lost on children? If they only knew how funny you really are!

Oh, and let me guess. The boxes were outside AND upstairs. So you get to lug snowy cold boxes inside and down a flight of concrete steps. Super fun!

You would be right about the location, Amie, but not about who lugged the boxes.

I told the school-agers they had to bring them downstairs to my office before they could have snack. Because, yes, I really am that lazy.

And I'm planning on doing the same thing to my own kids.

"Honey, go make Mommy a ham sandwich before you go to bed. That's a good girl."

How awesome is that gonna be?

As an Uncle to a gifted 8yo... You're in for a HUGE awakening. It will be you that will be slave/servant!

There is no snooze alarm on this wake-up call.
