So, if you know me, you know that I am the King of Minimal Information.  For example, if I leave the house and state, “I will be back in 10 minutes.”  I am sure that your immediate reaction would be, “Where you going?”  And my immediate reaction, stated or thought, would be, “Why do you care?”  Why do you need to know where I am going?  I said I would be back in 10 minutes.  What else do you need to know?  Now keep in mind, I do not do this on purpose, it is just who I am.  For example, if you and I have a meeting, and you tell me that you need to cancel, I will not ask why.  If you want me to know, you would tell me.  Quite honestly, even if you did tell me, I would wonder why you are telling me your business.  I blame my mom for this, as she is the same way.

Well, if I am the King, then my son is the Crown Prince.  I am now in the habit of asking my son very directed questions.  If I don’t, then I learn pretty much nothing about his life.  He does not volunteer information, like his father.  So, like so many other days in the past, I pressed him about how his life was going.  I discovered that he auditioned for the talent show yesterday.  This of course did not come up in any conversation yesterday.  I also found out that he was selected to be in the talent show.  He will be playing the violin on May 18 in front of the school.  How awesome is that!?!  I wonder if he would have told me had I not asked?

When it comes to minimal information, my son has surpassed me.  The King is dead, long live the King!


My family is hooked on Avatar: The Last Airbender.  I do not know how I never knew about this cartoon series, but it is awesome!  I love good cartoons, and I am glad that my family is hooked on it with me.  Go Aang!  If you don’t know what I am talking about, you are missing out!  You betta recognize!  I’m just sayin’ …
