MUSICAL INFLUENCE
A DMK Production

You have a wide range of musical tastes, especially the "oldies."  Your musical taste has rubbed off on your fourteen year-old son, Monroe.  Monroe likes all sorts of music including the "old stuff" you listen to.

You recently purchased a novelty table cover for your dining table.  The cover is mostly to protect the wooden table top beneath.  You selected a theme to match the fast approaching fall season.


Here is the design you selected:

(Full disclosure:  the table covers are vinyl and inexpensive.)


Your kids are grabbing a quick breakfast before heading off to school.  You are busy elsewhere in the house but hear the kids giggling and laughing.  Everyone then says bye and are off to school.

A bit later you notice the table and your new table cover.  Under the words "All the leaves!" is written in bold marker, " . . . are brown and the skies are gray."  There is then a cartoon balloon around those words and it is coming from the fox's mouth.  Then, under the fox, is written in the same marker, "What does the fox say?"

You know that Monroe did this as he is the only one of your children who writes in cursive.


MONROE - 14

When Monroe gets home from school you ask him about it and he admits that he did it.  He then says, "Funny, isn't it?"

Do you share Monroe's idea of what is funny?

It's an inexpensive cover, not an heirloom. I do think it's funny, and creative. He's not in any trouble, though a word about not defacing "important" items is in order.

Nah - not really, but I'll have to come up with something to outfox him. Smile

"Cute. Just don't write on the Irish linen and we're okay."

As spankable as Monroe looks, I just can't see this as an offense.

I have to agree. I found it funny and relevant and it's not like he defaced a work of art. He just personalized the table cover.

So I'll tell him I liked it, and add, "Unfortunately, rules are rules, so you'll have to get a paddling for defacing household goods... Nah, just kidding! It was quite funny, and I think it adds personality to the cover".

We are going shopping and he can buy a new one to replace his new art piece.

He looks uneasy, as though he could use a nice soapy enema... Twisted Evil

This is an actual event from House of Katz from this past Thursday. I changed the names and ages.

The culprit was Nathaniel who is now 16.  (I can't believe it either.)  He does have a vast area of musical appreciation and, had that not been enough evidence, I did know it was him as he is the only member of the "Krew" who writes in cursive (he is adopted and spent his elementary years in a school district in another state that still taught it at the time.)

I would not have considered this something to punish for at all and did have a good laugh. He "owned up" as soon as I asked and I could tell he wanted to know if I shared in the joke.  I am so happy that he and I have progressed to the point to where we can relate to each other and to where we understand each other - ie, he knew I would find it hilarious.

He was headed out to Walmart to get a couple of things for school (yes, he drives now Shocked  ) and he said he would buy a new one ( yes, he has a job now Shocked  ) to replace the one he wrote on.

The photo is of the actual replacement cover that he bought.  I wish one of us would have thought about taking a picture of the one with the "enhanced design" before it found it's way to the trash.

As far as not writing on the good stuff:  he fully knows that and it is not a conversation that was necessary.  By the way, those things are $3.88 (USD) here and so it wasn't like he was destroying anything he knew he couldn't replace.

----------------------

In the scenario, I wouldn't have punished Monroe either.

I have an inexpensive vinyl tablecloth like that solely to protect my good table and pads, both of which were expensive. I'd have kept the artwork one, and used it proudly.

Kier, that is the same reason I use them - to protect the table. I also like the fact that I can change them out on a whim to match my mood, season, or a holiday. This one will be replaced by a Halloween one next month.

I had no issue with keeping the one with the "enhanced design" but he already agreed to buy a new one and he changed them out when he got home.

Ah, yes, I remember quick breakfasts.  Nowadays I take my time.  Toasted bagels, cream cheese and coffee.  Glass of champagne.  Silk tablecloth.

I remember the Mamas and the Papas.

Anyway, I'm going to whack the boy.

By the way, dry salt removes red wine stains from cloth.  Of course, the French can pour wine without any dripping.  They twist the bottle as they pour.  Never mastered it myself. Then they slosh it around the glass and sniff it, before they deign to drink any.   Rolling Eyes   Me, I just pour it and drink it.   Very Happy

I remember when all the leaves were green and the skies were blue - purple, gold, silver, lilac...  drunken

Omg Nate is 16 already and driving... Shocked

I was going to agree with JB on this ...

Nathaniel sounds like a very responsible young man and knew what he needed to do...even though it was funny... Great kid!

Hehehe that looks kinda like the one I have outside on my table for fall... Like you I love the change and seasons to decorate but here we don't get seasons so I do it more so that it feels like a season

Strike one for the Mamas and (the)Papas  whose music I am very fond  of by the way depite being a bit before my time. I think its quite witty )

Looks like I will have to tae Nate 'out for a walk' and this Papa will be having a word as behaviour such as this will not always be tolerated
