I put the smackdown on my kids this weekend. Wait a minute. Talking like I’m a professional wrestler instead of a parent doesn’t play very well sometimes. I need to watch my word choice. No, I didn’t hit my kids, but I did tell them in a very firm voice, “You kids need to go and shovel the sidewalk.” It’s time they start contributing to society. More importantly, they need to make my life easier.
Keeping a clear path on the sidewalk is very important for society because then the citizens in my neighborhood can go for a walk and not get snow on their boots. Also, my kids need to know that they have to help out with their family. I do enough for them already by telling my wife to do stuff for them. I’m kidding. I’m only kidding. I’m a good Dad. I play video games with them. Go me!
