Their Creativity Knows No Bounds

"I HATE YOU! I WISH YOU WOULD DIE," bellowed the X-Man to his brother.

Given that my dear children will one day go to public school and be subject to Zero Tolerance, I feel compelled to remind them that wishing someone dead (out loud) is not a good idea. I told the X-Man to apologize and added something totally annoying, along the lines of,

"Sweetheart, I know you're very, very angry at your brother. It's okay to be angry, but you can't say you want him to die. You might wish he was very far away, but you'd be sad if he died."

"Unnnhhhhh...o-KAY!," he groaned and, turning back to his brother, "I WISH YOU WOULD GO TO ANTARCTICA!"

And that wasn't enough, because he added,


If a death threat is very silly, is it still a death threat? I wasn't sure, so I let it go.

Namasté, y'all!
