Always Thank Your Dad

My boy is researching a paper on Darwin’s theory of evolution.

“How’s the research going?” I ask.

“I discovered an error and had to start over,” he says.

“You discovered an error in your paper or you discovered an error in Darwin’s theory?”

“Well, Internet Explorer discovered an error and had to close.”

“Because if you discovered an error in Darwin’s theory, there’s probably a Nobel Prize in it for you. Be sure to mention me in your acceptance speech.”

“Shut up.”

“[Imitating his voice] ‘I’d like to thank my dad, who always encouraged me to do my best.'”

“Shut up.”
