My youngest at 16 comes home earlier this week, wide eyed and pale. I cocked an eye but said nothing, generally the kids will eventually come tell you what is on their minds in their own good time.  A couple hours later he casually throws himself down on the armrest of the couch in a manner only 16 year old boys can manage and hangs there like an upside down bat whilst the silence streches into eternity.  I wait.

"So Ma." - a statement.

*eyebrow* - "yar?"

"I think I might have killed my best friend today."

*two eyebrows* "whaaaat???"

"I took the Senokot out of the Meds cupboard and chucked the whole lot into his coke and now he's in hospital."

*I peer over my book* "ummm..." - I couldnt think of anything to say to this, I mean, what DOES one say to such an admission?

"WHY? Why did you do that?"

"Well, ma, you see, he pulled out the long hair I had on my chin (its the only hair he had on his chin) and I wanted to prank him back, and we didnt have Brooklax, so I figured I'd dose him with Senokot which is a natural product, I didnt think he'd go to hospital!!!"

Gods....  Shocked

Being a parent surely isnt for sissies, and a long discussion ensued about the nature of "pranks" and vengance and what is right and what is wrong. His buddy was let go from hospital the same night, the runs ran its course and no long-lasting damage was done. Just a little life lesson for my son about the nature of medication and what NOT to do to your best friend....

It aint for sissies.  Undecided

Oh wow. I lol'd and winced so hard at this! Uhm, strongs?

Get an sms from my 16 year old at school today:

"Ma, I tripped and now I've got holes in me"

I sms back:

"are you bleeding? Do I need to collect you?"


"No, its not that bad, but I will send you pictures of what it looks like"

Get pictures...

pants ripped to shreds, blood everywhere and he's literally punched full of holes...

I'm leaving to go collect my son who "tripped" and is now full of holes... I still have no idea what he tripped over or what caused the "holes".

Gods, it aint for sissies....  Undecided
