years ago the terrell household started a birthday tradition of quizzing the birthday kid. pam and i figured that there are some important things that a kid should learn during any given year of life. therefore, on each child’s birthday that child is quizzed to determined whether he know these things or not. if the child doesn’t pass the quiz then he is relegated to live the previous year over again in hopes that he will learn the right things.
today is adam’s birthday and therefore during supper pam and i started the birthday quiz. the questions revolve around things that we believe are important to being a terrell and a human. the questions vary but here are a few that occur every year.
- what are the 4 things that a real man does?
- loves GOD
- loves his family
- protects women
- protects those who are weaker than him
- a pen
- a bandaide
- a knife
- a phone/calling card
they’re simple questions but they are things that we believe are important to being a terrell guy of a certain age.
i’m proud to announce that adam has passed his 16th test and is now officially a 16 year old. he’ll be taking another test for the state of wisconsin concerning whether they trust him to drive or not next week. i’m sure he will pass that too.
