Chloe, Diana and I were talking about Ping Pong tonight. I told them about how when I was a teenager I would skip school and me and my friend Cory would go to my house and play. We would turn the radio up to 11 and play Pearl Jam. Diana would even come watch us (she, or course, would not skip school - she came at night - believe me, we were still playing). Chloe asked if I really skipped school and I said, "Hey, I had straight A's, if I wanted to take a day off I could!" I always had a class I could skip at the end of the day - either work release or seminary or English.
Chloe seemed interested so I made the following deal with her: If Chloe has straight A's and she wants to stay home and play Ping Pong I will tell her, "We don't have a Ping Pong table, go get ready for school!"
Chloe laughed and laughed at this. I am pretty lucky that I have such an easy laugh for a daughter.
