musings in mayhem

writer, mom, tutor, superwoman

Priceless

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.
