“WHY DON’T YOU EVER LISTEN?!” Screams Dad Who Only Says Things That Suck
Luke Trayser

My son is now sixteen. Recently, we were in the front yard playing baseball for/with our dog. (It’s a long story.) Anyhow, I had a flashback and I asked my kid, “Do you remember when you were about two or three and we were trying to plant grass seed down here? I kept telling you that you should sprinkle it lightly, but you kept dropping mini-handfuls in concentrated clumps? I lost it land yelled so loud the whole neighborhood could hear me and probably talked about it for years?”

He replied, “No.”

“OK,” I said. “Forget I ever mentioned it.”
