Yesterday, Captain Comic came home from school, and was asked the usual:
Mom: How was school today, kiddo?
Capt. Comic grins that I’ve got an excellent secret grin, because delivery is always in the timing…make ’em wait: 20.
(for those who may be unfamiliar, in his school day, his behavior and ability to remain on task and engaged is given a points system that tops at 20 points).
It had been a pretty tough week so far and he hadn’t played videogames because of it, not terribly so, but not videogames, either. He then pounced on the tv and Playstation like a cheetah on an baby antelope. He was quick, he was skilled. He conquered.
