Cookie Crumbs: Techie Tales

Jake: "So Mom, it was so cool-I was playing Fallout 3 and all these kids thought it was so cool, I love having gaming club at lunch."

Me: " Very cool, Jake. But let me make one thing absolutely clear. If I hear from your teachers that you are playing video games during class, even once, you know what will happen."

Jake: "I know."

Me: "I will take that game, and I will have a giveaway on my blog, and you will never see it again. "

Jake (nods solemnly): "Ohhhh ya. I know. I'd never be that stupid, because I know you'll actually DO it."


Jake: "Mom the weirdest thing happened today."

Me: "What's that? Things are finally calm computer wise? You're catching up on your school work?"

Jake: " Remember Mrs. Y?"

Me: "Ya......? "

Jake: "Well she said that if it's okay with you, she'll pay me to teach her how to use her PC."

Me (laughing for a full 3 minutes, so hard that tears begin running down my face): "Wait, let me get this straight." (gasping for air)

"After all THAT, now teachers are offering to PAY you to teach them how to use their home computers? You're joking."

Speechless. I'm totally speechless.
