My Son Says He Needs a New Watch


As we’re passing a watch shop in the Buffalo airport, my son, age 15, says, “That reminds me — I need a new watch.”

I say, “Why do you need a new watch? When we were getting my watch, you told me you already had a cool watch.”

“When was that?”

“I don’t remember but it wasn’t that long ago.”

“I didn’t say my watch was cool,” he says. “I just said your watch was lame.”
