Pardon my Brag


Nathan and I were out and about yesterday when he noticed a sign in Spanish.

"Hey," he pointed out, "that sign's got 2 explanation points and one explanation point is upside down."

Now for my brag. Nathan and I were signing in for a check-up when Nate read the following sign aloud:

"Co-payments and deductibles are due at time of service. Thank you."

I did help him sound out "deductibles," but the rest he read flawlessly by himself. The lady on the other side of the desk was in shock.

"How old is he?" she asked even though she'd just logged in his birthday.

"He's 5." I answered. But I kinda wanted to point out that he's not even 5.5 yet. He's quite a reader. OK brag over.

Next, you program him to recite what a deductible is. That'll really impress the bank tellers.
