Let’s face it, we are all proud of our kids:  it comes with the territory of being a parent. But I have to admit something to you all…my child is a teen prodigy.  No, I’m not talking about her able to do amazing things with mind power or that she is “thissss” close to curing cancer, no I’m saying that she’s a prodigy…at being a teenager.

Granted, she’s only 10, but she’s this fact only proves that she’s the prodigy I know she is.  She’s got down the rolling of the eyes (though truth be told, I think she got that from her mother).  She’s mastered the art of selective hearing (that she got from me as I’ve found its a vital tool in day to day life).

And the whole dismissive and condescending tone? She knows so much about such an insulting vocal weapon that she’s written a book on the subject (actually its an audiobook).  Yes, indeed, I have a teenage prodigy.  Naturally, her mother and I are thrilled…where’s my Tylenol?

Anyone else have a similarly gifted child?

Greetings blog wanderers and seekers of truth, or whatever truth appears to be from the mind of a warped individual. You have reached the inner sanctum of some guy named Alan. Having graduated college sometime shortly after the Earth cooled, he finds himself in his late 30's and working out in the real world. His humor is dry and his outlook not so serious and somehow has picked up the nasty habit of writing about himself in the third person. He is married with child and loves his family, sports and, of course, his beloved video games...likelihood of his growing up? Not good. Are you an established site or magazine looking for a writer? Drop me a line if you are interested.
