Oh, The Shame Of It All...!
Well, I did my best!
I tried to teach them, preach at them, even tried to lead by example...but all to no avail!
I've told them of all the mistakes I've made in years past, I've shown them the pictures and read them the horror stories out of the paper! All for naught...!
They just sit there, disinterested, staring at me with those innocent blue eyes and a stupid smile starting at the corners of their little mouths! Nothing that I do or say seems to have any effect at all!
The oldest and biggest has already left the house, looking for someone to fight or a lady to chase! Sometimes I don't know which he likes best!
His brother, the smallest one, has already started with the hard stuff! Thank goodness the neighbors can't see this! Thank goodness their brothers and sisters can't witness this!
Thank goodness neither of them can drive...!
Not only is he tipping so early...he's using a STRAW! I know I taught him better than that! What a sorry sight! Red eyes, lost look on his face...and singing at the top of his lungs!
Oh, the shame of it all...but what can you do?
I know...! We can get some fresh coffee and sit in the kitchen for a bit! Just try and not stare at the staggering cat in the dining room, OK?
Happy New Year, everyone!
