I have a son. I have had him for a decade. Apparently, 10 years is a long enough time for some to acquire a significant amount of knowledge and I have, consequently, learned a vast amount from him. Not the usual wisdom one might aspire to but, I have come to believe, he is definitely onto something. What, exactly, I couldn’t really say; but valuable, to be sure. And, what good is knowledge if not shared? Therefore, in the interest of fairness, here are some of the Decade Boy’s most admired words of wisdom.
Why goof of tomorrow when you can goof off today.
Girls who chase boys are pathetic.
Smart people are often “over-rated”.
The enjoyment of any activity is always increased by the removal of all authority figures.
School (work) could actually be fun in Heelys…and, of course, no teachers (bosses).
The song “Animal Crackers in My Soup” is worth singing repeatedly after changing the word “Soup” to “Poop”.
School is completely unnecessary, just “figure it out.”
Forget motivational speeches, prizes, or perks…you want results? Show me the money!
Which brings us to:
Career goal: “To be Rich.”
Most Memorable Quote:
“All the seasons of Childhood are wasted while in School.”
The person who decided it was a good idea to have 5 days of school/work to only 2 days of weekend was the dumbest person on the planet.
Confucius say: He who passes gas in church sits in his own pew.
Decade Boy say: When all else fails…kick butt.
Like I said…clearly onto something.
