Bummer

[Discussion after Alana spent three days in Cedar City at the state Shakespeare competition.]

Alana (15): We went to a restaurant all by ourselves and everyone was running all around the campus and stuff. We had complete freedom! It was so cool. But I didn’t do a single thing I wasn’t supposed to because you’ve totally taught me never to have any fun.

    I bet you never have fun, ever! you seem like the total boring blah mom, and you have never done a creative thing with her, in her entire life! HA!

    Kids can be such dorks! I bet she had a little fun, she just doesn’t wanna admit to it. Hee hee, gotta love ‘em!

    I wish I could better convey her expressions. She told me this with such enthusiasm, as in, “Mom, I was SO GOOD! I could have done all this stuff other people were doing, but I DIDN’T!” But the words came out as I wrote. I burst out laughing (right there in the checkout line at Walmart) and then she said, “Oh! I didn’t mean it that way!!!”

    Please tell Alana, I completely sympathize! Whenever I have to turn down a nice invitation (usually at work) to have a glass of wine or something similar, I just tell them that if it is fun, I probably don’t do it.:wink:

    Whatever! Canning and quilting and hoarding food into storage is SO fun. Mormons know how to have great times :wink:
