I found this note from my oldest on my desktop this morning. To fully appreciate it, you have to know three things:
1) He stays after school a couple of times a week to tutor middle school kids. This isn't entirely out of the goodness of his heart; the college scholarship he applied for requires it. However, he enjoys it and the teachers tell me he's quite good at it.
2) He's in the middle of building himself a new computer system.
3) He's studying sonnets in his AP English Class.
Three Things Today:
Am I tutoring? I'm asuming no for the moment, but if I am, please call the school.
Second, if possible, please deal with your old hard drive. I'm pretty much ready with Dad's.
Third, that motherboard is REALLY cool looking, it brings a tear to your eye with its beauty. I could write a poem about it. In fact...
Sir Jeremiah Paddock
Oh how art thou with such beauty but a thorn in my being?
How shouldst I live without thee?
Moon with wan face guides my soul to your mind
And frees with such a grace not even the heavens can comprehend!
Yes, but my motherboard, and I.

Honestly, that is completely original and crappy.
But really, please look at that thing.
THIS is what I live with.
