I am currently seeking patent for my latest invention, attributed to tweens and their endless eye-rolling activities.
Honestly, is this something they learn in school? Is this a subject they teach in grade 3? How has eye-rolling become such a staple in my sweet child’s life?
Well I have invented a cure. This cure is still in experimental mode, so feel free to apply to your own unique eye-rolling circumstances and report findings. I’ll create a spreadsheet, if you want. Or maybe someone can design an app…
Currently, I’m of the opinion that his eye-rolls are [still] cute(ish) and not-yet-too annoying but I can see how this could escalate in the future. Not to mention the fact that the little 6 year old chicklet has decided to accompany her “OH MY GOD MOMMY” and “what is the MATTER with you MOMMY” with a healthy dose of eye-roll each time. Doesn’t leave much to be desired, does it.
Anyway, yesterday I announced to my boy that for every eye-roll I witness, I will deduct 10 minutes off the electronic gadgets they’re allowed to play with on the weekends. So far he’s registered -20 minutes (that’s NEGATIVE twenty minutes) of Minecraft time, and he’s down to 10 minutes of XBox 360 NHL hockey thingy game he plays.
But. Today is only Wednesday…
How’s THAT for a cure? Now, where can I seek patent information for this tidbit?
