1. If you are a boy and your mother tells you on Sunday morning that the pants you have on are dirty and you cannot wear them to Mass, you will have to change. But if she neglects to tell you specifically that you must put them in the laundry, anything is fair game. You can totally take them off, kick them under your dresser, and leave them there until the next day when you have a doctor’s appointment. Your mom will be in such a rush getting out the door in the morning that she won’t even notice you are wearing the dirty, wrinkled, offensive pants until everybody notices you are wearing the dirty, wrinkled, offensive pants because you are wearing them under the bright lights of an exam room.
2. If you are a mother embarking on a 90 minute car ride in the cramped quarters of a Toyota Corolla with a 9 year old boy and 11 year old boy in the back seat, check under that seat before you close the doors and leave the driveway. The kinds of things you do not want them to have access to are a foam baseball bat and a plastic ice scraper.
3. If you are a wife and you allow your husband access to the family Netflix queue, date night will roll around and you will find yourself sitting down in front of this.
