My Son is the Man

For those of you who have been following the Airtime saga since its inception about 10 years ago, you might recall that our oldest was deemed a "man" by his father when he urinated standing up for the first time. There was quite a decription written by Air at the time, and, should anyone be interested, I would be delighted to post it.

But today, our boy has embarked on a lifetime of adulthood. He changed his first lightbulb. He looked worried, very much like my father and my sister, when it came time to get up on the step stool, but after assurances from me, he took a deep breath and climbed up there to the top step. Lefty loosey, righty tighty, I told him, and hopefully it's one of those things he will one day say he learned from me.

The funny thing is, in my house growing up, my mother and I changed all the lightbulbs. So maybe he's the woman.

why would you subject your son to the dangers of lightbulb changing at such an early age? it can be quite scary and traumatizing!
1) electric shock
2) falling off step stool
3)dropping new lightbulb on the floor while thinking its twisted in enough
4) dropping dead lightbulb on the floor while thinking its still twisted enough
5)dropping either light while juggling both light bulbs in the in between stage of changing
6)turning on light for first time and risking having the bulb blow out the first time ou turn it on, cn be very damaging as well to the changers psyche thinking his light bulb changing wasnt good enough and he may never change another light bub again!
7) if he assumes his manly role and changes the light bulb while urinating standing up...could be disastrous

I think he will survive. Thank you, Lightbulb Man.
