ok…just this one more, then i’ll stop.
So on the TV “news” last week, one of the stories was about school closings to try and stop the spread of the mild but dreaded swine flu. What do the brilliant parents arrange for the kids? PLAY DATES! Yes, yes, we get all the kids together in the park, or at someone’s house and have them all tumble around together, share food and drink out of the same cups. I don’t even want to think of all the tweens and teens prowling the malls and food courts.
