That’s right, I’m watching. All the time.
I am just waiting for you to make a move. A move out of the room you are in to another room. I am waiting for you to fail at something you have been instructed hundreds of times, at varying volume levels, to do and yet still forget to do.
Again, I am one of those dads…
If you leave the room and leave the light on, you better dang well know I will be right there within minutes to make sure you know you left the light on. TURN OFF THE LIGHT!
I am not Tom Bodett, and I will NOT be leaving the light on for you (in case you didn’t get that reference).
Why is it so hard to remember? Why can’t you turn off the light when you leave the room and turn it back on when you come back in? Why do I have to be the power police?
Perhaps I will install motion detecting light fixtures and remove all the light switches…Oh, then that might actually have to make the teens get up and move once in a while. I might be on to something here…
Anyway, can we just do one thing today? Turn off the lights.
Who else has to deal with this, every. single. day.?
