Parents are killjoys, aren’t they? You take your spoon, start hitting your soup so it starts to splat around everywhere, and they come along, take the spoon and the soup away, and tell you that your happiness isn’t as important as keeping the room clean.
Or, as Brian Regan put it, the parent’s saying:
Hey man, knock that off. Can’t you see the paint on the walls is more important than the joy in your heart?!
Kevin DeYoung says some pretty good stuff a lot of the time, and although I expect you already know where he’s going to go with this one, have a read of the lessons he learnt from Brian Regan.
