A Different Perspective

D0EB88C1-6679-421B-AF1C-E398CF6DDC28“Oh my God,” Suzanne said, “don’t you think you have enough coats of lacquer on that bench?”

Brad looked up at his daughter and said, “One more layer should do it.”

Suzanne let out a little giggle. “You always tend to go overboard on these DIY projects of yours, Dad.”

“Someday you’ll find, Suzanne,” Brad said, “that the ideal approach to successfully completing any project, whether for your job, your home, or your life, is to have the gumption to do it the right way.”

“Dad,” Suzanne said, “my generation has a different perspective. We believe in going with the flow, you know what I mean? You need to be more pliable, to roll with the punches, to chill.”

“But, Suzanne,” Brad said.

“But nothing, Dad,” Suzanne said. “Here, take a toke of my doobie and try to chillax.”

    That’s a great way to participate in all the different challenges! And you depicted the differences bestowed by time very well…

    Heres a doobie, Chillax 😂 Interesting write up. Were you using the results of your one word challenges to create this story around them? Or how did that work?

    What does the last sentence mean? Am I betraying my age asking what “toke” and “doobie” mean?

      Oh my. Do we have a generation gap here? 😆 A “toke” is a hit, a drag, a puff. And a “doobie” is a joint, a rolled up marijuana cigarette, so to speak.

        Well, you see I am only 21.

        But on reading your explanation, it’s probably not just age that accounts for my ignorance.

          Ah, so you’ve never taken a toke off a doobie? You have much to learn, Grasshopper. (And if you don’t get that reference, we DO have a serious generation gap issue.) 😂
