Boys and the President

I finally got around to asking One what he thought of President Obama's speech on Tuesday. Here was his description:

"He just used a lot of fancy words and meanderings to tell us to work hard."

Then, after some more reflection, he added: "It doesn't matter what he says. He could make Dune sound boring." He's referring to the book and not the movie, of course.

Two apparently had no reaction at all, because he slept through it all. Oh my, that's so respectful.

I don't think this is partisanship on their part. They are, after all, 10 and 7. I just think watching grown-ups give speeches on TV isn't a 7 or 10 year old thing. Maybe next year the President could only speak to high school students? Just a thought ...
