the serious club

What do my kids do on the weekends?  They launch private organizations.

They hold their meetings in a fort extending from the triple bunk beds.

Of course, there are clearly laid-out guidelines.

Activities include leafing through daddy's vintage war planes picture book, because, as Bright noted, "The military is serious."

Also in the minutes, reading from serious literature. 
 At one point, I dared to use the commode in the boys' room, and Bright said, "Who flushed the toilet in the Serious Club's bathroom?!"

"I did," I admitted, "but I did it seriously."

"Oh, that's OK then," Bright said.  Whew!  I was pardoned.  I hate to think what my penance would have been.
