Tangent to a headline
Headline News – breaking story!
Teen arrives at school in an Assassins trench coat, blatant disregard for the districts dress code! But there’s more – his plans for the weekend? To attend an ADULT party!!
That’s the spin Nancy Grace would probably put on my sons morning. Bonkers.
Woke up late again this morning, which meant I got to drive Nic to school.
My mother splurged on him this Christmas and bought him a coat from the video game ‘Assassins Creed’. It had to be tailor-made and didn’t arrive until yesterday (Thursday).
Nic could barely contain his excitement. Putting said coat on, taking it off, putting it on, zipping it in different ways. Removing hood – putting hood back on. LOL! It was fun to watch him so happy about something.
His school does have a dress code. Today was ‘Spirit Day’ though – they could deviate a little from the patrolled path with school colors – none of which are white and blue. I told him ‘you get busted for that, you take your knocks. You know you’re breaking the rules’.
This weekend a friend of his is also turning 19 and having a birthday party. Which, will probably consist of a video-game-a-thon. (Kids today – they just don’t know how to party, lol, but … that is a VERY good thing).
I’ve been reading a lot of ‘what you think is true really isn’t true – twist and turn’ novels lately. So – my mind tangently wandered to how someone with absolutely no knowledge of the facts could spin the mundane and cracked myself up.
Just reminds me to be sure to take everything I hear on sensational news channels with a grain of salt. Better yet, a salt lick.
“Where were his parents???” I can hear them saying.
She was home writing a blog about how bonkers the spin is that’s put on breaking news when so little is known fact. And when she’s not doing that, she’s working two jobs. LOL.
Probably they’d spin that to: “Working mom – teen son left unattended – kept company only by dozens of violent video games”.
Hey – now I think about it – Pac-Man was pretty intense. Ghosts – magic pills for speed – and eating the aggressors – ewwww!
