My Wish List

Thursday's Writer's Workshop hosted by Kat.

The Prompts:

1.) Interview a child.
(inspired by Quilao Triplets)

2.) How do you stave off boredom?
(inspired by Jenn's Pen)

3.) Write a poem for the little boy in your life.
(inspired by Life With Kaishon)

4.) Describe a memorable interview or talk about your experience trying to find a job amidst this recession.
(inspired by Lacey)

5.) Create a Help Wanted Ad.
(inspired by Jenners)

Number five is my choice.  Here goes:

Position Available Immediately

Mother of teenage daughter is desperately seeking a normal boy who doesn't smoke dope or cigarettes. He wears his pants AT LEAST to his hips. He makes good grades. He knows what he wants for his future, and "getting laid" isn't in the top ten. 

This boy will not know the average hourly rates of the motels in the area, nor will he know of a good therapist. Not yet, anyway.

This young man will have the amazing power to sweep said teenage girl off her feet. Even though said teenage daughter prefers the bad boys. He may have to agree to scheme along with "the mother", pretending to be that bad-ass, so as not to lose the girl's attention and affection.

The wage for this highly-sought-after position is the undying love of said teenage daughter. So long as he plays by her rules.  Oh, and he must be very versatile, as those rules may change from day to day.

There is a daily bonus of the love, respect and complete and total awe from the parents of this teenage daughter for every day "the successful candidate" manages to survive said teenage daughter.

Please apply in person, along with your parents, siblings and all ex-girlfriends.

I'd recommend the Son, but I'm busy looking for a girl who won't lead him to do outrageously stupid things, wants to spend evenings studying so that college graduation looks possible, and doesn't believe weekends were made for partying. Oh, and she has to be able to tolerate his friends.

Amy said...

Now that is funny! Good luck in your search :D

I did a post on the same prompt!

Betty said...

What a great idea, I think I need to do this on my blog yet... :)
I´m getting pretty frustrated that my oldest can´t seem to "find" someone!

wy-not said...

Nice one. I hope you get the right applicant. But, umm, I don't think this boy exists - not on our little blue planet anyway. :-) Geez I'm glad you're back.

Aunt Julie said...

How old is your teen? I have a 21-year-old nephew (I know, too old) and his 14-year-old brother, who looks older than his legit age. As the Mom of 2 girls, let me tell you...I feel your pain!

MIITB said...

Very original post! Love it! My favorite part was about not knowing the hourly rates of hotels. lol

Sheri said...

Very nice. I, too, would like to be able to offer my firstborn, but unfortunately he fits into the other category more than not. It's funny how kids can be so loving and sweet and then one day they are suddenly unrecognizable, and appear to be from a foreign country. I've been told, though, that they usually become human again around the age of 25, so maybe your daughter should just wait till then to start dating. ;-)

I was going to mention Kainoa?? He can be a very bad boy, but usually doesn't like to upset adults.

Do you have a crib available?

Michelle said...

yea, what's up with that?

Ronda's Rants said...

It will all work out....but I do remember being in your shoes.Hubby worried more than I did...she didn't marry her father's first choice but she did marry the best her father said at her wedding!
Love them...and let them grow. :)

Devyn said...

I take it the current isnt a big favorite in the household?

DAD said...

Put it this way Devyn, he wouldn't be capable of getting away from me when I want to wring his neck because he wears his pants pretty much around his ankles. I have a few choice words for him but I better not advertize them!!!

Rhonda said...

Hmmmm. Perhaps a little HARSH!!! lol

Stefany said...

Let me know if this ad worked. I have been looking for the same boy. Maybe you will have extras for the job. ;)
