Boring Parents

Photo by: Fandango

Twelve-year old Mitchell hated walking through the park with his boring parents. They were so strict! They wouldn’t let him play “Grand Theft Auto” or listen to Cop-Killah’s raps. Mitchell parents were just too straight-laced to truly understand him.

As they sauntered down the path, Mitchell’s mother Dianah pointed, “Isn’t that our old bench, Hon?”

Clay looked at the bench, roughly carved from a log. “Yes, that’s the one. When I was drunk one day I crashed my Harley into it.”

“We met on this bench,” beamed Dianah.

“We kissed for the first time here.”

“You carved our initials into it with a sword.”

Clay smiled. “And then…”

“…And then we conceived Mitchell here.”


“It was a beautiful moment, Sweetie,” said Dianah.

“That crazy cop arrested us here,” grimaced Clay.

“He was bored, Hun. Looking for something to do.”

“Wow!” said Mitchell, seeing his parents in a new light. “You guys spent a lot of time here.”

“No Sweetie,” said Dianah. “That was just our first day together.”

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    Ha, nice punchline – not so boring after all. Kids always forget their parents had a life before they came along.

    I feel for the kid. Perhaps his parents need to relate to him more.

    Pick your chin up off the ground, Mitchell. You’re never gonna believe what your parents did on their second date 😀

    Loved this. A fun read with an underlying study of human nature ……. often it is the still waters that run very deep.
