Oh, that awful parental curse!

At one time or another in a moment of desperation nearly every parent has spewed these venomous words upon their offspring:

"I HOPE YOU HAVE ONE JUST LIKE YOU WHEN YOU GROW UP!"

I'd always sworn I'd never say it but I can't lie. I did it too. I hang my head in shame when I think of that horrible day 10 years ago when I wished the worst upon my 12 year old son. At the time I was truly puzzled by his folded arms, smirky grin, and ice cold stare. What was he thinking? Did he not understand the implications
of this monstrous bequeathal?

Many years have gone by since that fateful day and I've finally come to realize the meaning of his "yeah, right back at ya Mom" attitude. He's now enjoying the single life without a care in the world. Without a child to turn his blonde locks to grey. Perhaps someday he'll inherit the curse, but for now he watches poor old Mom as she's punished daily for her moment of maternal impropriety.

And though this small child tempts me daily; lest
I be sentenced to reproduce once again and suffer my own curse well into my retirement years; I'll bite my tongue and never, no NEVER say those awful words

...to his little brother.
