green writing for parents

Overheard in the Wolfe House #218

Sam (after a frustrating encounter with the hardware of a mounting plate for a dual-sensor smoke detector): I didn’t know the anchors wouldn’t go into the wood. They just turned and turned and made big holes in the wall.

Peggy: Don’t feel bad. Some things you don’t learn until you get the experience. When your dad and I were young parents, we’d call Grandma and Grandpa all the time to ask how to do something.

Sam: Yeah, when you don’t know how, Grandpa knows.
