Tonight (April 16th) Saxon and I will be appearing on The Cocktail Hour radio show with hosts Andy and The Rev! I’m very excited about this opportunity, but also am a little scared. You see, Saxon is… how do I say this?… You know those little mechanisms in your brain that filter what you think and what actually comes out of your mouth? Saxon doesn’t have one. She is a self-proclaimed S.U.P. (Socially Unacceptable Person)
So, I decided to employ a technique that worked wonders with my daughter when she began school as a kindergartener. I made her a list of rules to follow. If she followed these rules all week – without breaking any – she got a prize.
So, here are the rules I made for Saxon:
(Saxon, please print these rules and tape them to the surface of your desk)
Rules of Radio Etiquette
1. Keep your hands to yourself
2. No biting
3. No saying the F word.
4. Keep your pants on
5. Don’t talk about poop
6. No licking (this is generally a good thing, but not during the taping of the show)
7. Blow your nose in a tissue – not on your shirt
8. No name calling
9. No farting
10. No burping
If you follow all these rules, I will take you to the Dollar Store and you can pick out any one item of your choice!
