Why I think My 3rd Son May be a Flake

Let's start with yesterday in the ER. This is after declaring himself feeling like one of those guys from New Mexico. I was actually impressed that he watches the news enough to know that the folks in Mexico were wearing masks. I kind of understood how he got that confused with New Mexico as we're studying states and capitals.

New Mexico is Santa Fe, by the way. I'm quite the expert.

Bones was sitting in the bed flipping through the channels when the UF Kentucky game came on. One of the channels was doing a morning replay for those who had missed it the first time or just flat can't get enough Gator time.

Bones sat up and said, "LOOK! It's UF and Kentucky! They're playing again!"


As if it were baseball...

Now flash forward to today. He dashed upstairs to his class to gather the classwork he'd missed today and in so doing, emptied his folder that had all his returned tests, homework and classwork.

He brought it back to me and we went through it in the car.

This is one of those things a teacher would post on the internet... incredibly amazingly stupid answers.

It was RELIGION. He was taking a RELIGION TEST.

He got like... 5 out of 10. Maybe. He obviously rushed through it.

And didn't think.

Because one of the questions was, "What is Salvation?"

It was marked wrong. I looked at his answer and in his crappy 10 year old handwriting he wrote, "Its when your hungry". (Yes, he used the wrong your and the wrong its... but that's beside the point.)

Now I'm lost because I'm fully steeped mentally in Religion and I'm trying to figure out if he thinks you take Communion when you're hungry or what...

And so I said, "Bones. When you're hungry? What does hunger have to do with salvation?"

He said, "Yeah, you know when you're dying of hunger. You're crazy hungry..."

I was thinking, "Salivating?"

And finally Mr. T from the back pipes up, 'That's STARVATION."

Perplexed I said, "Why in the heck would you think your religion teacher would ask you about starvation on a RELIGION test?"

His reply? "Good question. I was wondering that too."
