While this space is usually used to recount the utterances of our younger son, Sebastian, today the quip is from our older boy. Nathan now 17, is 6’4″, a senior in high school and finds his parents to be extremely un-cool.
Nathan, who claims he is the world’s best Madden player on X-Box (apparently, Madden is a football video game—I would have no idea since I am in no shape or form a “gamer”). This also, by his logic, makes him the world’s singular authority on anything and everything that has to do with Professional Football.
Nathan: “Sebastian, where did Johnny You Knee Tass play?”
Me: “Nathan, why are you asking him? You have no idea, I guarantee it.”
Nathan: “Yes I do, the Oilers.”
Me: “Um no.”
Sebastian: “The Sonics.”
Nathan: “That was a basketball team. The Patriots?”
Me: “Wow. I told you, you have no idea.”
Nathan: “The Bengals?”
Me: “Yeesh. Think ‘Baltimore.’”
Nathan: “The Ravens?!?”
Me: “As I figured, no the Colts. They originally played in Baltimore.”
Nathan: “What?!! That is wrong on so many levels.”
