Cultured Children

We had booked tickets to hear Cleveland Orchestra perform at the Severance Hall, Cleveland. We all dressed up in our finery, and were set for a wonderful evening of culture.

The music began. Calum was sitting next to me, and two minutes after the music began, he whispered:

Calum: 'This is beautiful'

Me: (smiling smugly at the thought of how cultured the children we'd bred were) 'It is, darling'

5 mins later

Calum: 'I'm bored'


Me: (horrified) 'But you just told me you thought the music was beautiful'

Calum: (rolling of the eyes) 'I said the BUILDING was beautiful. The music is boring.'

Oh well, you can't win 'em all.

  1. How true! You can't win them all. But, we still keep trying, don't we? :-)
