The two J's have more access to electronic devices than any child should have. Most of our children do. Along with this freedom, comes new lessons for all of us.
A couple of months ago, J2 walked away from the computer without signing out of Facebook. His brother, J1, took that opportunity to post the following on J2's status. "I LIKE PENIS". I was the first to discover it, because I'm all up in their computer use. After much ado, the post was removed and we all moved on, thinking the lesson had been learned.
HA! Not so fast.
Later that same evening, we were playing a board game which our good friend RWC brought over. It's called "Worst Case Scenario", and is a litmus test for how long you would survive in anarchy.
During the game, J1 is constantly texting someone. It behoves us to ask whom he's texting with so hot and heavy, and he says it's a girl he knows from school. After several hours, J1 sets down his cell phone and goes to use the restroom. J2, who must have been patiently waiting for the opportunity, calmly picks up J1's cell phone and texts "I LIKE PENIS".
J2 then calmly puts the cell phone right back where he found it, as he whispers to us what he did. This kid is absolutely diabolical. With the eye's of an angel, and the soul of a poet, he'll lull you into complacency, and just when you think he's forgotten what you did, he swoops.
When J1 came back into the living room, he picked right up texting where he had left off. Unfortunately, the girl at the other end had gone away. Perhaps I should have stepped in, but it was like on Star Trek where they can only observe or you change history. I decided to let it play out.
It was hysterical. RWC and I watched the whole thing transpire, like we were watching television. You just can't pay for that kind kind of entertainment. Oh, and by the way, I won "Worst Case Scenario" because women always live the longest.
