Playin’ Hooky

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008

Finally, I have a fixed schedule for the comics! Weekdays, baby! Come early and come often! (New comics post at 1:00 am CST, if you really want to be early. I’ll be in bed.)

I let my 8 year old daughter stay at home from school today. Now, I don’t know what kind of parent I am, but I think I may have been bamboozled. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure she’s not feeling well. It’s not like she’s going to go all “Ferris” on me and take her friend’s dad’s sports car for a joyride. But I think it’s just a sore throat. My wife just smirked and rolled her eyes when I told her my decision to keep her home. At least she respected me enough not to rescind my orders. But, now that I think about it I should have sent her. When my children are sick I get completely clueless about what to do.

It’s probably better I kept her home so as not to inflict a plague on the other third graders. I hate when that happens.
