Too much Reading

Adi is a terrific role model for Ari.
But, in some scenarios, he is being such a bad influence on Ari.

Take for example, his avid reading.
Ari takes after his brother.
I know. I know.
We all think reading is a good habit.
But, too much of a good thing can be a bad thing.

He reads in the restroom.
He reads on the street.
He reads when I am nagging him to get ready to school.

Ari observes all this.
And, chooses to do the same as his big brother.

Today.
It is a beautiful day out.

Ari is walking back home.
His lovely friend is walking back home.

She is urging him to stop reading so as not to walk into a bush or tree.
He doesn’t listen to her.

Now, let me ask you a question.
Let us assume you had a lovely companion of the opposite sex (or of the same sex my dear LG friends), would you keep your face stuck in the book.
No. I don’t think so.

You would make conversation.
Would you not?

Well, that is what I would do.
If I had a lovely friend to walk back home with, I would make conversation.
I would ask if their lunch was good.
I would ask how their day want at school.
I would ask if we can play outside in the evening.

I think I am going to have a strict chat with Ari later today and try to wean him off the bad influence that Adi (well, that one is a goner! hopeless!) is having on him.
