“…besides, Oprah always says ‘What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.'”–My words to Jonas on the tail end of an explanation about why we were making him go to the South Middle School Band Concert tonight at the Fine Arts Center.
Actually, I have no idea if Oprah always says this. I know that Oprah did say it once when I was thirteen years old and babysitting some neighborhood kids who loved watching her on tv. I thought she was so profound.
Of course, now I don’t actually care what Oprah says and that’s why it surprised me when the words came out of my mouth. For the record, I’m not sure our eleven year-old boy found her words so profound.
