Re: Why data mining is bad

He might consider it a liability

I do think its good fortune. I've seen every one of his "firsts", and with few exceptions I'll probably see them all. Those "first serious girlfriend" activities...ehh...he'll probably be sure to have me skip those...

My 13.5-year-old kid keeps pointing out that she only needs a driver's license for public streets, not for private roads or driveways or parking lots. And that all the practice she gets now will pay off when she gets her learner's permit, pays for driver's ed, and pays to take the test. And that all the experience gained now will make her a smoother, more confident driver with her new license.

I just think of my high-school friend who learned to drive at the age of 14 and had been using his parents' car for months-- on public roads-- before they found out.

I've thought of a way to liven things up around here upon spouse's return. When this driving discussion rears its ugly head again I'm going to ask the kid if the same logic could apply to beer & cigarettes...

One of her clear warnings to change the subject is when I respond to her latest logical thinking with my parents' favorite quote, heard ad nauseum during my growing years:

"It's only a pack a day, and I can quit whenever I want!"
