When it even rubs off on your kids: “What should we do today kids?” :Is the library open?” “No, not today.” “How about the used book store, then?” “No, not today.” “Well, how about the mall book store?” “The mall on a Sunday? It’ll be swamped.” “Let’s just stay home, then I can finish my book.”Don’t know, don’t have kids yet
