Did you ever play that game "I never" in college? You know the one that you say I never did something (I never had sex in a car) and then you drink if you did. I used to get so drunk off of this game. Now what does that say about me? Anyway I was thinking about this game the other day when I heard myself say to one of my kids a phrase that I so often heard from my parents. The whole "this hurts me more than it hurts you" bullshit (OK it actually does not hurt me at all). I never wanted to sound like my parents (drink), I never wanted to use trite phrases to get my point across to my children (drink), I never wanted to dress my children in matching outfits (drink...I am from the South for God's sake) and I never wanted to tell my children that I just did not have enough time (drink a lot). Somehow my inner checklists just keep getting longer and longer with less and less items checked off.
