my new discovery

I'm not above bribery.

Tuesday night I heard the following come out of my mouth.
"If you sit quietly through this band, I'll give you a chocolate."

As a former teacher, I know intrinsic motivation is best.
As an observer, I've always felt that bribery isn't the best way.

But, a parent, I've learned that there is more than one way to skin a cat (and i mean that purely figuratively unlike some of you other people). So, sometimes you use the less palatable choice out of desperation. And I got to see Arapahoe and DC, so that was my goal.

I was happy to leave during Pomona's performance.
