All four of us were in the car, when out of the blue, Mark says, “You know, I realized that I don’t look people in the eye when I talk to them. I need to work on that.”
A. Who thinks that?
B. Who states it out loud to his family?
This kid surprises me just about every day. He’s becoming more responsible, just when I’m expecting him to be less so. He decided (on his own) to take charge of his robot-building team, because he thought they lacked leadership. They needed someone to tell each person a task, and then follow-up on it. He saw this, and made the decision to fill that void. The team members were thrilled.
This is the kid that doesn’t (usually) want to put more effort into anything that he doesn’t have to. Unless it is his web site or other computer-related activities.
He did his homework immediately after returning home from church. Usually, he waits until 5 or 6 o’clock.
Who is this kid? (And, if he’s not really Mark, let’s pretend I never brought this up. I like this kid. Whoever he is.)
