13-year-old boy: "Mooooommmmm. When is it gonna stop raining?"
Mom: "Hmmm. Let me consult my crystal ball..."
13-year-old boy: "This weather stinks."
10-year-old boy: "I'm booorrreeeed."
Mom: "You're bored? Well... you could vacuum the car? clean out the Tupperware cabinet? Clean the toilets? Vacuum the dog hair? Read? Empty the dishwasher? Go through the recipe files and figure out what's for dinner? Fill out these school forms for next year? Pay the bills? Buy birthday cards for the months of June and July? Write a thank you note for the crab feast we attended? Read? Do a puzzle? Do a load of laundry? Clean up your room? Figure out which clothes don't fit anymore? Clean the cat's litter box?"
boys: "awww, moooommmm. There's nothing to do."
