Parting Shot…

…afore I venture off into the mysterious Midwest…

So we’re sitting in urgent care, waiting for Third Son and The Wife to emerge (it’s been that kind of day), and I’m trying to pass the time with the Remaining Three by swapping lies. My first one got a good response: “I’ve never seen any of you children before in my life, and I don’t know why you keep talking to me.” My second was aimed right at First Son, whose desire for wealth is remarkable. “I’m actually the richest man in the world; I just act like I’m poor out of love for you children – so you don’t get spoiled.” First Son, without hesitation, made like he was holding a gun to his head and replied, “Tell me where your money is or I’ll shoot myself.” Very shrewd child, that.


  1. Can’t beleive I’m the only one to comment on this – pretty damn funny.

  2. Ah, a lie, to mislead, to trick, to cause future damage, such a great thing to pass along to your children, your offspring.

  3. Matthew Lickona says

    Ease up. It was a game – who can tell the biggest lie. No one was misled or tricked, because everybody knew at the outset that we were all lying. My children understand the difference between a game and real life.
