“Mom, the three of us have been thinking about red ribbon week. And we understand all we talked about so much and even had the council to talk about changing things for better. And we have our whole list of ideas to help other kids. But also, it is true we don’t do drugs, and it is also true we have our own spending money from autographing books, and it is also true we are growing fast so kind of need new socks anyway, so what do you think?”
What do I think? I think kids win. Crazy sock day crisis averted.
