|Case of Whiners|
This gift, which they called “A Case of Whiners,” shows in a pictorial the many reasons why I feel the desire -- no, the need -- to end so many days with a glass of wine (or even a bottle) in hand.
The wife and kids were kind enough to attach each reason to a nice bottle of red, giving me enough wine to make it at least through the first few weeks of so-called "summer break." Okay, maybe not quite. But certainly through the next weekend.
|Reason #1: The first child's obsession with her siblings' earlier bedtime.|
|Reason #2: The second child's inability to make the bus without stress ... ever.|
|Reason #3: The third child's hysterical screams whenever I pour cereal in|
the wrong bowl, pick out the wrong socks, or generally do anything for her.
|Reason #4: Has anyone seen reason #4? I mean child #4? |
I swear, he was just here a minute ago.
|Reason #5: I JUST NEED TO GET OUT OF HERE FOR A MINUTE.|
Maybe the dentist has an afternoon opening? Let me call.
Next Father's Day, maybe they'll surprise me with an intervention. We'll see.
