Parent to Parent So there are two things you need to know about my husband in order for the following story to make sense. The first is that he really enjoys the radio show, A Prairie Home Companion. As far as the rest of the family goes, my oldest son can’t stand it, my youngest daughter refers to it as “that annoying show Daddy plays in the car on Sundays,” and the middle two kids and I can take it or leave it— we don’t mind if it’s playing in the car, but we’re not going to go out of our way to make sure we hear it.

The other thing you need to know is that Rodney is definitely a big picture guy, not a detail guy. This leads to him frequently telling stories incorrectly, using incorrect words, etc. Most of the time, people can figure out what he means just fine. So for example, when he asks for “crunchy things” on his salad, I know that he means either croutons or fried noodles. Waiters and waitresses can usually figure it out too, and we all just let it slide. All of us, that is, except for our children. They don’t let anything slide! My younger son, Daniel, in particular is one who really notices details. So he is very quick to point out any incorrect details in a story Rodney tells, and if Rodney asks him where the “clicker” is, Daniel will just ask, “what’s a clicker” instead of telling him where the remote control is located. So a few months ago, my “big picture” husband heard that Garrison Keillor was going to be retiring. If he heard the details, he certainly didn’t remember them, because for several weekends in a row, whenever he heard A Prairie Home Companion on the radio, he would say, “I think this is Garrison Keillor’s last show.” None of the rest of us really cared at first (remember, we’re not big fans of the show), but after the

w Ne tion a c o L

third time, it became a running joke. So now, every time the show is on, someone is guaranteed to say, “Isn’t this Garrison Keillor’s last show?” As far as we know, he’s had at least 15 “last shows” by now. So this month, when Rodney told us that July 1st is going to be Garrison Keillor’s last episode of A Prairie Home Companion, not one person believed him. But it turns out, this time, it really is his last show. I guess even non-detail-oriented people do still get the details right every once in a while! Until next time,

Jennifer
