News, but not the serious kind
Let the nightmares begin…
Blog Guy, we need some of your parenting advice. We’re having problems with our small daughter.
I’m sorry to hear that. What’s the trouble?
She’s way too normal. Totally well-adjusted, happy, never cries or has nightmares. What can we do?
Ouch. That’s a tough one, but my advice would be to take her to an international tattoo expo and let the whole freak show get all up in her face.
Then, that night, drop hints that some of those folks are probably hiding in her bedroom closet and plan to carry her away to their cave and eat her up.
Do you think that will work?
It sure worked for my parents. I haven’t hung any clothes up in my closet for years. Just ask my wife.
