To the casual observer: table, workspace, desk, flat surface.
In our house: S.P.E.A.K. EZ 2000.
Whenever I pick up the kids from their schools, events, sleepovers, camping trips, concerts, [fill in the blank], I get the same response:
“How’d it go?” I ask.
“Good,” they reply.
“How was it?”
How’d you like it?”
“What’d you do?”*
*We’ve gotten to the point where even my open ended questions yield identical ‘good’ responses.
Concise. Simple. Efficient.
Minimal effort on their part.
Achieves the desired effect of quashing anything [everything, in their opinion] resembling an inquisition–I often withdraw, exasperated by how little information they divulge.
Consequently, we installed a S.P.E.A.K. EZ 2000 (Surface Provocateur of Energetic Anecdotes from Kids) to fight the battle against ‘good.’
No batteries required. Easy installation. Effective.
Simply sit the kids down at the S.P.E.A.K. EZ 2000, add food items, parents, and witness the magic.
‘Good’s’ transform into ‘Today’s…at school’s…a new kid joined our class’s…we were really excited’s…he’s great at kickball’s…he started on the “M’s” in Rocket Math’s…’ and ‘Listen to these quotes from our afternoon at the library’s.’
Highly recommend this product.
