The eldest Dorian is 17 now and has his heart set on joining the Para's, for a while now he has been displaying certain actions which give me the impression that he is gearing up for this by trying to taken on the attitude of one. Mainly this consists of referring to my time in the RAF as "slacking off with the crabs" and referring to his younger sister as a "hat" when she has her Air Cadet uniform on. Other activities include drinking my whisky when his mates are round and replacing it with cold tea as well as helping himself to tins of my beer and then trying to pull a jedi mind trick and telling me that I must have drunk them. He was also busted a few weeks ago shagging his girlfriend in his bedroom by me as I came into the house (his bedroom window is level with head height) when I asked why he didnt close the blinds he said that he "had his hands full at the time" .. Mrs Dorian is starting to worry but secretly I am quite proud. Thats the background. Son is doing well at school and apart from the latest squaddie inspired antics is no bother at all, he has two part time jobs and is a grafter, all round a good kid. However we were handed a letter on Friday saying he had been suspended from school for one week for "indecent and irresponsible behaviour", my first though was that he had nailed his girlfriend in a classroon and left the blinds open, it turns out that it was for using this video in a presentation to the class .. www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1HOlntOYD0 We have been asked to meet with the Headmaster on Monday. Son tells me that he did this due to his History teacher being a bit of a lefty tree hugger who seems to spend a lot of her time preaching about the current Iraq and Afghanistan situation and he is quite frustrated at her, in his view anti militairy stance. Obviously this did not register well with my first born considering his favoured career. The above video was apparently the entire presentation, the class had been asked to look into the history of Iraq and come up with a presentation or essay which shows the Iraqi people as "the loving, generous and cultured people they are" to quote his teacher, this is what he came up with. Now I am also in the doghouse with Mrs Dorian as it is my laptop he used and so by female logic I am also partly to blame, the fact I laughed my Sunday Afternoon peace and quiet has been shattered, I cracked up along with my boy and the two females have gone into judgement overdrive mode, son was told that there was to be an end to acting like a squaddie by his mother, she then attempted to mend some bridges by asking him what he wanted to eat. He looked her straight in the eye, smiled and said ... "An Egg Banjo please Mum" I think ke deserves a suitbale "Squaddie Themed" reward for his attitude .. Any Ideas ??
