What is the FUTP logo on Jak’s shirt? I just noticed it.
Work Wife vs. Insignificant Other. The stuff of soap operas.
Who will win: Work Wife or Insignificant Other?
That’s not just weird, you’re WRONG.
I’m gonna go revisit the comments from yesterday. This one’s over my head.
re. “Many of them can only get into places like Bob Jones University.”
The USAF gives extra weight to homeschoolers. They prefer homeschooled kids, all else being equal.At least that was true a few years back when my own children were that age.
re. “At some point you have to deal with fellow humans.”
If you think the norm is for homeschooled kids to be cooped up & hidden away from public interaction, you are gravely mistaken. I suppose that is an option that some weirdos can exercise, but as a rule, homeschooled kids are better socialized.The first time my youngest encountered public school classroom was for Driver’s Ed. After the 1st class he came home appalled by the immature behavior of his classmates. some weeks later we learned from the teacher that during the middle of the 2nd class he stood up & said, “Just a minute, ma’am.” Then he walked up to the biggest troublemaker, stood in front of him and announced, “You are going to be quiet.” Someone else snickered & he held his stare. Then he walked back to his seat and said, “They’re all yours ma’am.” No more trouble the rest of the time.
I’d say he read the situation with some skill, almost as if he’d been socialized to human interaction.
re. “Having raise 5 homeschooled kids, socializing is a great reason to homeschool.”
I can personally vouch for that, having homeschooled both of ours. I can generally pick out homeschooled kids in a group because they are the ones most at ease socializing with people in general.
Socializing in age-segregated school settings, modelled after industrial mass production techniques is not normal in human history.
re. “But that’s just me.”
Not just you. Some may consider your remarks prudish. But I’m married to a similarly “prudish” woman and in my limited experience, in the right setting, there’s a whole lot of pent-up feelings that get unleashed. I’ll bet that’s the norm, not the exception, for wives & husbands who are so proper in public.
I wonder what Charlie Rich’s wife of 20+ years thought when he recorded “When We Get Behind Closed Doors”? He was still married to her for 43 years when he died.
" have a great nephew like that…."
My wish for them is that their parents can somehow manage to homeschool them.
