(Listen up Shirlee Wilkerson)
Remember that one time when I was trying to register my car and I had to call Tim to come over and put the sticker on my license plate cuz I didn't know how to do it and I didn't want to screw it up? And do you remember how you all made fun of me cuz I couldn't do it myself? I remember! I still cry a little when I think about it.
Well listen up!
I had the following conversation with Lydon....
Me: Hey Lydon, now that you are 16 and now that you have Grandma Ruth's car to call your very own, and now that school has started we are going to have to get you a parking permit so that you can drive your 16 year old self to school in Grandma Ruth's car.
Me: See this sticker (Picture me holding up a newly purchased Morgan High School parking permit sticker) you need to put this parking sticker on the car so that you can park.
Me: See these instructions (picture me holding up a set of sticker sticking instructions that were given to me when we purchased the parking pass) you need to read these instructions CAREFULLY so that you know WHERE to put the sticker
Me: See these instructions (picture me still holding up the sticker sticking instructions) and you need to read these instructions CARFULLY so that you know HOW to apply the sticker
Me: Read the instructions to me so that I know you understand them
Lydon: Blah blah blah sticker blah blah blah back window blah blah blah adhesive side face up blah blah blah on the inside of the back window blah blah blah so that the sticker can be seen from the outside blah bladdie blah blah
Me: Very good Lydon. Now here's your parking sticker.....run along and properly apply the sticker, adhesive side face up on the inside back window of Grandma Ruth's car so that the sticker can be seen from the outside.
And this is what he did
Close up of the sticker from the outside
And the sticker from the inside
Hmmmmm....do you think the parking sticker police at Morgan High will mind climbing in the backseat of Grandma Ruth's car to verify his parking permit?
Alright Shirlee, he's all yours. Just remember that he is a little more sensitive than I am -- try not to make him cry please.
