"I haven't read a book since the third grade" aerocontrols Send a noteboard - 28/11/2018 02:25:23 PM

So I'm driving my daughter and 3 of her friends (they are 8th graders) to see a movie last week, and one of the two boys brags that excrement from his mouth. I don't know how to tell him (or if it would matter to him) that he's optimizing himself perfectly for popularity in high school, but on a longer time window, he's just going to be the guy who can't participate in half of grown-up conversation without revealing himself to be a total idiot.

My daughter's response: "My parents make me read". Damn right we do, but not enough.

Hollywood has the best moral compass, because it has compassion.

I think almost everyone's school had at least one of those kids in it. - 29/11/2018 04:16:26 AM 30 Views
