I open up my laptop yesterday, working on some project timelines and needed to double-check some dates. I don’t have a paper calendar anywhere in sight and so go to my handy-dandy laptop calendar on my dashboard.
Lo and behold, I have a message. How fun! It’s one of those yellow sticky things. Someone’s typed up a yellow sticky note and put it on my dashboard, you know, IN my screen (how clever!).
It reads …
“I want the iphone or droid please please and can i have a raise in my allowance”
I immediately realize, it’s from my 12 year old. Here’s my thinking on the matter…
If there were an attempt to capitalize proper names, I’d have considered the request.
If there were an attempt to add some punctuation in all the right places, again, I’d have considered the request.
If Palo Alto or I had an iPhone, Droid, or gotten a raise with either of our respective incomes any time in the last oh, let’s just say, 3 years, again, AGAIN, I may have considered the request.
BUT in light of all of the above, no, sweet darling daughter, love of my life and reason for my existence (in addition to your two other sisters).
Have a great day at school, sweetie!!!
