More good reasons to have a son or two

They know things that you don't. For example, if you watch the X-Men Wolverine movie and are confused by the opening scene, not knowing if Wolverine really was a sickly child or whether the "medicine" being given to him by the man he thinks is father was poison instead, you could ask your son. Then you would know and can move on to thinking about other things.

Or, if you cannot figure out your cell phone, even though you've had one almost a decade longer than your son, you can ask him to show you how it works. On this one, you have to be careful not to let him "do it for you," because if you do, you will never learn. Not that you might not have to ask him several times, but sons are patient teachers, so that is okay.

they are also useful for answering questions about the LOTR movies. Not that one will ever understand them, but sons can answer the questions at least and shed a little light.

Around here sons are also good for setting up the xbox so a mom can watch a movie on the TV and not the computer.

Yep, sons are handy to have around.

I totally agree about the usefullness of sons. Good thing, since I have three.

But -- that was poison?? Trying to remember if I knew that or not......I may need to rewatch that movie now. Hmmm.....

Heather, no it was not poison. He really was a sickly child. My son said that his childhood sickliness enhanced his body's ability to heal, which is why he could endure the adamantium experiment.
