Yesterday's Life Lessons
1. A food fight involving green grapes at the dinner table can be an occasion of great fun and much laughter providing that:
a) No one gets hurt. (Bonk! Right off my forehead…)
b) Everyone picks up the stray pieces of fruit afterwards. (My aim was lousy.)
One of the great things about parenting? Once you’ve done the job of instilling good manners and proper behaviour – anything goes.
2. I needed the laughs, the release…. After three phone calls, I’m still waiting to hear back from the roofing company. I’ve surmised that if you’re calling about a warranty issue, you are not top priority.
Beth is getting very cross.
