Quickie: Cheering from the Sidelines

I spend a good deal of time cheering my children on from the sidelines of the various sports they play. Often times that cheering is me shouting from the sideline things like:

“Take the shot!”
“Block that kick!”
“Wait for your pitch!”
“Run, Run, Run!”

It is an attempt on my part to encourage them to do well. So it shouldn’t have surprised me when my youngest wanted to give me some encouragement from his own sideline, that he shouted the following as I headed out to the library the other morning:

“Dad, get a job!”
