At dinner the other day somehow the subject of smoking came up. We took the opportunity to remind Andrew that he is never to smoke. Andrew agreed that he would not, and provided the following three reasons to Aunt Abby as to why he would not:
"First, my mom told me not to.
Second, it makes you die.
Third, I am too young."
Just when I think that I have no real authority in the house, I at least know that on some level you appreciate my instruction.
