As the parents of a tall tale-telling almost 10 year-old boy, my wife and I are already on the lookout for¬†signs that we’re being snookered.

So, it was with more than a modicum of skepticism that I fielded son #2’s request to provide him with a “signature sample” to take back to his teacher (not notarized — or at least not this time).

I suppose the only thing worse than getting such a request is not getting one — because the child in question intercepted the teacher’s request, and provided their own “sample.”

Said son’s second miscalculation:¬† parent-teacher conferences are today/tomorrow.
