Jock might not be sporting the best grade point average of the sophomore class, but never let it be said that this kid isn't smart when it matters.
He had an English final coming up, and the class was allowed to pair up with partners of their own choosing. When I asked him why he chose the partner he did, his response was
Mom, she's got the highest grade in the class. (can you hear that with the Duh, Mom tone he used?)
The other night, Bug was attempting to negotiate a later bedtime. We've found that 9:30 works great for him. Any earlier, and we're spending entirely too much time trying to keep him there, and any later and he has a really hard time the next morning. It's a fine line we walk with this one.
Bug: Mom, pllleeeaaassee.... can I stay up until 10?
Me: No. Dude, you're 10 years old.
Bug: Exactly. I'm 10 years old, and it's 10 o'clock. It's supposed to be that way.
With that logic, I'm out of luck here. There is no 35 o'clock in any time zone.
In case you are not yet aware, Jock has a new girlfriend (Yes, another one. I almost can't keep up with them. I will say that I've noticed a trend with these girls, and I'll just say that his tastes do not stray towards blonds. This gentleman seems to prefer brunettes. Go figure.). Every teenager we've ever known has more pictures in their cell phones of friends, boyfriends/girlfriends and anything else than they will ever look at. Jock's phone is mostly full of pictures of muscle cars sports cars he sees on the streets, with a few of his friends. However, he has NEVER had a picture of ANY of his girlfriends in his phone. EVER.
So when Coach asked him why he didn't have a picture of the latest, his reply had us busting up.
She's just not as photogenic as I am.
I'm sure what he meant to say was that she wasn't as agreeable to being photographed as he was, and we all know how agreeable he is. Just look at the sidebar picture of him to prove it.
