But I am still human.I merely wish that the Curse of Inconvenient Things would fall upon their heads. Nothing horrible, just inconvenient. Miss the green light and be forced to wait at the intersection a whole three extra minutes. Be in the shower when that important phone call comes in and then forget to check voicemail. Run out of creamer and not realize it until after brewing fresh coffee. That sort of thing.
Remember in Sleeping Beauty when the evil witch places a curse on Sleeping Beauty that on her 16th birthday she would prick her finger on a needle and die? And then the good witch “softens” the curse by making it be so that she would not die but instead just fall asleep for 100 years?Okay, maybe that is a bad analogy because falling asleep for 100 years is not really that great either.
I digress.The point is, our kids can learn from us. Instead of having a fight with someone and screaming out, “I wish you were dead!”, why not say, “I hope you get a ‘C’ on your test and your Mom is late to pick you up!”
Oops, I gotta run. I am waiting for an important call and I think I forgot to charge my phone battery.MOV
