his weekend Episodes IV and V were being a little poky getting out of the house. It was a rainy day and I was trying to take them to the theater to see “Wreck It Ralph”. I’m a stickler for getting good seats and catching the previews at any movie, so I wasn’t about to let them make us late. As the frustration level rose I envoked the holiday season and made them an offer to help motivate them.
“OK kids. If you can get in the car and in your seatbelts by the time I count to 20, while we’re out we can go take a picture with you-know-who. You know, the very old, very large man with a long white beard.”
Bam! They were buckled up before I got to 10.
So, true to my word, when we got to the theater I made good on my promise.
What? I didn’t lie to them. I was totally honest. If they thought something else, well… that’s on them.
