There’s nothing better than a good, ol’-fashioned quiz on a Monday morning …
In my search this morning of the 14-year-old’s bedroom for the missing packing tape, my hammer (?), and one of any of the 178 or so Sharpies I’ve purchased over the past 13 months — just one, one is all I’m asking for here (blue, red, black, doesn’t matter) — I instead located which of the following?
- Most of my athletic socks. In varying states of disrepair, including four that had been rolled up to create a small basketball that is being fired into a hoop created by what used to be some plastic molding on his desk.
- Six pairs of scissors. To go with five Elmer’s glue sticks and two bottles of Elmer’s glue and the kid hasn’t made a craft of anything since about the fifth grade.
- An empty carton of orange juice. Pulp-free. But not mold-free.
- Something for which I’m going to need the help of lab technicians before I can properly identify it.
- All of the above.
And this is after he deep-cleaned it on Saturday.
