So, here are some ideas I have. Let me know if there are any that you particularly like:
- Special K
- Kid K
- The Kid
- Dobbie (see previous post
- The King
- The Wall
- My Apathetic Greasey-headed Early-Onset Alzheimer's Curmudgeon (too long, I know)
- Borgin (the greasy-haired forgetful dark arts proprietor of Borgin and Burkes from Harry Potter)
So, who is this "K" of which I speak?
This week was K's fifteenth birthday, as hard as that is to believe. We got him "Rock Band" for the Xbox360. His other relatives sent him some much appreciated cash. He is about to go away for the weekend with his youth group. When he gets back, we promised to take him out for a belated birthday dinner at a restaurant he has wanted to try out. Oh, and school vacation is next week as well. However, he's volunteering at the YMCA (sort of a required servitude for kids who want to get into the camp counselor program).
He's on the tennis team while trying to keep his grades at B's and better. He's also pretty into his guitar lessons. He also likes skateboarding, and has a wild affinity for the sloppy slacker clothes that skateboarders wear. He likes to waste time on the Internet (particularly chat, myspace, and facebook - though he is currently banned from chat due to some school work concerns). He has several TV shows he likes to watch, some of which we also like to watch - though he prefers to watch them without us.
He can be a pretty humorous kid at times. Though, he is also forgetful, argumentative, and sullen. I guess being a teen is tough. But, so is parenting one.
