Earlier this evening my partner said to me, “I will stick a banana in my ear, if da boi takes a shower without procrastination.” Excited, I yelled up to da boi, repeating the challenge. Da boi replied, “that isn’t enough.”
Da boi is 17, but looks and acts about 13. Short statured (because his me and his dad are), full o’ meds for his bipolar disorder and full of piss and vinegar that goes with adolescence.
I remember a time under 10 when he loved water, loved baths, would spend many minutes in front of a mirror to pat and comb his hair. Those days are long gone. The strong body odor of teen boy appeared last summer. There are days of sham showers, slight splashing on of water and uncombed hair.
So it is 5 minutes before lights out…and of course a shower has not happened.
Just another whackadoo day and the first weekday of spring break….
