A Glimpse At Our Parenting

Fade in

Matt: How old do you suppose John has to be to see "Slapshot"?

Me considers, then: Fifteen.

Matt: That's what I was thinking, too.

Me: And not in this house.

Matt: Yeah.

Me: He'll be over at Hockey Friend's house, and Hockey Friend, who has been watching it since, you know, now, will pull it out and say, "John, you ever see this movie?"

Matt: That's exactly what will happen.

Me: And I want to be far, far away when it does.

Fade out


  1. I've still never seen Slapshot. When I told my brother than, he was horrified.

  2. Maybe you and John could watch it together. In, like, six years.

    You've got me to thinking that I need to rent it. Will you need to explain anything to me?

    Drink orders are often given as asking for the beverage one wants then adding "and none of that stinkin' rootbeer."

    I think 15 is great and at someone elses house is even better.

    What age did your kids see Star Wars? We've been telling it as a bedtime story and might break it out for your nephew (and niece, by extension) this weekend.

    My father-in-law told your brother-in-law that when Darth Vader lifted that dude by his neck, he wasn't really dead; it just hurt him for a bit. That's the scene I'm most worried about.
