Attention Span

By John Ross Harvey

The simplest questions to my son
Often come with convoluted non-answers
As he is sometimes zoned out
From TV or Gamecube
During the question period
I’ll ask if he wants Toast or Cereal for breakfast
Which one?
Toast or Cereal?
“Um, yeah.”
Jam or Peanut Butter?
“Peanut Butter.”
So it was Toast?
To drink?
Juice or Milk?
“Uh, huh, yeah.”
So it was Milk?
When he asks me a question
He says: “Mom….uh, no I mean Dad?”
