Dinner and an Analogy

Saturday Night. Dinner at a local Mexican joint with the family. A television screen on one wall playing a Panama vs. Honduras FIFA football (soccer) game.

Daughter: Ooooooo!

Me: What?

Daughter: That guy playing in that game on the TV is down on the ground.

Wife: And?

Daughter: He’s curled up like a teen-aged girl on the bed who’s really sad because her parents told her she couldn’t go to…I don’t know…a really cool party or something.

…I guess I should be glad that she’s been able to get something out of “Jessie,” “Wizards of Waverly Place,” “The Suite Life” and other such fare from Disney and ABC Family that she can apply to real life.
