Did I hear him correctly?

My darling little boy has earned a permanent mark on his record. No it is not a good mark either! The record I am speaking of is the record that all moms keep of what cute and not so cute things the children have said and done throughout their young years.

While eating dinner tonight we were discussing how some schools were already closed tomorrow and how some are operating on a delay because of the severe cold we are expected to experience upon waking up.So Zack starts saying how dumb it is that the news has the information at the bottom of the television because it is too hard for people to watch the news and read that information at the same time. So I reminded him that its alright because most schools call the house or parents cell phones anyway to let them know so they do not have to watch the news for that. Then I proceeded to tell him when I was little how we had to get up and watch the news to know if schools were closed or not. I let him know if you blinked and missed it you had to continue to sit there and keep watching until you saw your schools name. Kris said something about it being alphabetical and I said not when I was little, it was listed as the information came in.

Zack then said "Mom did you like the olden days?" I asked what he meant and he replied "Did you like the olden days when you were little?" I told him yes but I did not like having to sit there watching and waiting for my schools name to appear. Then the little snot  he said "It must have been hard going out in the cold getting the oil for the lamps!" Cough, choke, spit and sputter! I think I might just have to hurt the boy. How old does he think I am!

Let me just say the boy is now walking on thin ice, very think ice. Ice so thin that one false move or statement from him will send him into trouble the likes that he has never experienced before!
