School Days

People we know recently decided to home school their kids.

"Did you ever think we should try it?" the Lovely Bride asked me.

"Sure," I said. "The same way I think about setting myself on fire."

"You don't think it's a good idea?"

"It's a great idea for two types of people. One, religious nuts. Two, really smart and dedicated parents. Which one describes us?"

She laughed.

"Besides," I continued, "can you imagine what would happen if our family spent that much time together?"

"We'd get a field trip through the criminal justice system," she said. "Maybe the kids could get credit for that."

"If you ever become a religious nut we can discuss this again," I said.

"Is there any wine left?" she asked.

"A little," I said.

I teach my friend's children new stuff all the time. This month, the topic is mole people and their civilization at the center of the earth.
