Raising a Buddha – Jeffery

Leave a comment

Mom: “Jeffery, I need you to go clean your room.”

Jeffery: “Sure, in a minute.”

Mom: “No, now!”

Jeffery: “Ok, I just want to finish this game first.”

Mom: “Jesus Christ, why don’t you ever just do what I tell you to do when I tell you to do it?”

Jeffery: “Because I am not your thoughts”

(two weeks later, after coming off of being grounded)

Mom: “Is this seriously what you’re going to do with yourself all day? Just sit around on your little cushion, chanting your little buddhist scripture things that you learned in your philosophy class and contribute nothing to this house? Seriously, Jeffery, what are you going to do with the rest of your life?”

Jeffery: “When I am tired, I will sleep; when I am hungry, I will eat; When I am happy, I will laugh; when I am sad, I will cry.”

(Jeffery was grounded for a month)
