There Are Some Things You Shouldn’t Tell Your Mother

So Dude comes home from school late last week and says “Well, Mom. I learned a couple things today. One, I learned how dangerous football and rugby could be. One of the 8th graders fractured his neck and got a concussion at the football game yesterday. He was running with the ball with his head down and the other guy hit him and squished him. The second thing I learned is that you shouldn’t run with your head down.”

He starts Rugby today.

I told him there are some things you shouldn’t tell your mother, or she just might wrap you up in bubble wrap before she lets you out of the house.
