She Blinded Me With Science

My son, Lane 1 was happy to go to school this morning. I was shocked too. That is, until he pulled a permission slip out of his folder.

"Hey Ma, can you sign this?"

"What is it?"

"It's a permission slip."

"For what?"

"To allow me to watch science porn at school."

"What?! Let me see that."

I read the permission slip. "Eighth graders at St. Peter, Paul and Mary School will be viewing a biology tape about the reproductive system."

"Science porn, huh?"

"Yeah and don't worry, I'll even take some notes and share them with Dad."

My sister Mary came out of surgery quite well yesterday. They are planning to move her out of the intensive care unit and into a regular room today. They expect she will be in the hospital for a week. She has a very long recovery ahead.

I'm thankful for the surgeon and doctors who have put my Humpty Dumpty sister back together again. I'm also thankful for my rotten teenager who keeps me laughing even in the most stressful times.
