School Event – Why bother?

Tonight I went to an event at my daughter’s school. I can’t say it was the highlight of my week, but it was pretty funny. They had a local guy named Mr. Richard there. Mr. Richard is pretty popular around Orlando. He reads to kids, plays guitar, sings. He is pretty amusing. It was really amazing to see the kids and parents responding to him. My wife refers to them as “Mr. Richard groupies.” He has several videos on YouTube. That will give you an idea of what he is like. Honestly…the kids love him.

Well…sitting a few rows in front of us was the dad of one of the other kids. He was sitting next to his wife and had brought his portable DVD player to watch what appeared to be a stand up comic. Why did he even bother coming?

  1. Those white earbuds tell us something. That cool guy? He’s got an iPod, and though that doesn’t mean he is a Mac user, he may well be, and that’s why he was smart enough to totally ignore then mindlessly dull Mr.Richards. What fool thought Mr.Richards could be REMOTELY interesting to any young person with half a brain?

    Oh, right. Some Windows guy.

  2. Max left comments all over my blog after getting a bit miffed by a couple of my Mac posts. Here is my response to him.
