oh look a kitty!

From my ADD prone 17 year old son: "Oh mom"

ME: "Yes son?"

Son, beating himself in the head with his eyes closed trying to rack his brain for something he needs to tell me: "Oh crap"

Me: "Something important?"

Son (frustrated): "UGH! I don't know!"

ME: "Is my uncle in the hospital again?" (because one of the last times he did this, my uncle WAS in the hospital and he forgot to tell me)

ME: "Focus!"

Son (light switch on): "Focusin, The Simpsons, Bart, Fart, Cart, Winn Dixie!"
(if you don't watch The Simpsons 'Focusin' is what the Dr. prescribed to help calm Bart down, it made him go nuts drive a tank through town, wear aluminum on his head .. good times good times)

Nothing like a game of weird word association with yourself to bring you to your point.

His was, "If you know your SS# at Winn Dixie (a local southern grocery store) they will cash a check for you"

I don't know how "The Boy" makes it through the day sometimes. Hell, he doesn't have his SS# memorized

Ha! I didn't memorize my SS# until college when you need it just to get around the campus. For the longest time, I had to whip out my driver's license, which had SS#s on it way back then.

Ah! The wonders of teenage boys!

I finally had my SS# put on a chip and embedded in my body so whoever needs it can just scan me, as long as they have the proper encryption software.

Just kidding. It's that geek thing again.

Your kiddo is funny!

Thats good your son got the SS number down, I would of been pissed about the uncle though. He's gettin there

Shaurna.. I was upset.. luckily I work with my mom and she told me it's her sister's husband. Th Simpsons and Family Guy ROCK!

Well don't feel badly, I have two sons like this - a 16 year old and a 17.5 year old and neither of them can remember anything important. It took me a year to get them to memorize my cell phone number, they just said "why do I need to memorize it, it's in my phone?!".

Yet ask them if they remember a cheat code for a game that they haven't played in six years and they can rattle it right off to ya.

Makes me just want to smack them!!

See... that's where I wonder where "they" (the authorities ) draw the fine line between abuse and a "for being and idot" smack

Focusin - what a flashback, LOL!

Bee said...

I don't have kids but I'm married to a non-attention-payer does that count? :o)

dizzblnd said...

yes yes... it does!

ettarose said...

I know my SS# and my hubbies. I know both our pin #'s too. I know about 10 phone numbers I can rattle off. But, unlless I close my eyes and do an imaginary keyboard I cannot remember all my passwords at work.

dizzblnd said...

LOL! I am the same way.. our brains are finicky little things

Unfortunate Names said...

Contra cheat code: up up down down left right left right B A start. I remember that from 18 years ago. sigh. And I was an ADD prone kid now an ADD loving adult.

Anybody who references the Simpsons that easily is cool in my book.
