“In my opinion, we don’t devote nearly enough scientific research to finding a cure for jerks.” ~Bill Watterson

Have you ever had the opportunity to call your own kid a douchebag?  Well, I have.  And he deserved it!  On Friday afternoon, the boys were at the pool in our neighborhood, and Ronald’s little girlfriend (you remember – the one who’s mean to him?) came out to watch them swim.  I was relaxing in the hammock and overheard the following conversation:

Ronald’s girlfriend:  “I’ll name five reasons why girls don’t like Ronald.”

Gerald:  “I’ll name five reasons why girls DO like me.”  [pointing to his abs one at a time]  “One.  Two.  Three.  Four.  Five.  Oh wait… there’s SIX reasons!”

Me:  “You’re such a douche.”

Father Figure:  “Did you really just call your kid a douche?!”

Me:  “Yes.  And he deserved it!”

Gerald:  [grinning smugly, still looking at his abs]

Wow – That was the epitome of douchiness, no?!  I guess that makes me the proud parent of a teenage douchebag!  Well played, Gerald.  Well played…
