Default Boys are idiots

Back in September my older son, who for the remainder of this post I will refer to as “Genius”, broke his left wrist doing...no wait, attempting...a trick off a bicycle. He missed fall lacrosse due to that little stunt. We got him patched up and he was back in action a few weeks later. Genius has been shooting his bow daily getting ready for his big opportunity this weekend. We have his bow dialed in perfectly at the 18yds he should have a shot at. He’s shot out of the pop up for practice and is dead on. Good activity at the spot, so there’s a high probability of success. Well, he HAD a good chance for success until yesterday when he broke his right wrist showing his cousin the same **** trick he attempted when he broke his left wrist. So not only did Genius miss fall lacrosse and now probably his entire hunting season, but he will also miss tryouts for spring lacrosse.

I have high hopes that the “hold my beer and watch this ****” gene did not get passed to his younger brother.

Gotta learn somehow...

Do his fingers work? In a wrist cast could you loop release over it and make it happen?

If he is lefty get cast molded to hold bow, make sure you got a strap on bow and get with it. Tension in bow hand is bad anyway lol

I've got two boys, 14 and 15, and they are both "geniuses". One more so than the other but they never fail to leave me shaking my head at something done or said at least once a day!
Wouldnt trade em for anything though but they do speed up the grey hair process!

I have to say girls aren't free from this. I have 2 girls and one is super cautious, the youngest, well not so much. But so tough I guess she'll be ok. Early this year she broke her arm cried for a little bit then kept playing, couple days later said her arm hurt, but kept playing then when I grabbed her arm she cried out. So to the er we went. Dr didn't want to do an xray cause she was playing in the room and he said she looked fine. But I insisted. Sure enough broken arm, full cast over her elbow. Been broke for a week. Bad dad I guess but you couldn't tell. Tough little 3 year old girl.

I wish I could tell you they will outgrow it. My older two definitely fit in the genius category. They got home from college last night around 8:00. I had just cleaned the barn in preparation for all the Thanksgiving company. They apparently held the Texas beer pong championship in the barn with 10 of their friends after I went to bed. Woke up this morning and the barn was a wreck and they had eaten half the food my wife had pre prepared for turkey day. They are not on our list of favorite people right now. At least it doesn’t appear any one was injured this time. The joys of having boys.

Admittedly I once made “the most awesome bike jump ever” by sliding one sheet of plywood part way off a stack at a construction yard. It bowed when I rode up it and launched me off my bike. I skidded to a stop on the stack of plywood on my hands, arms, face, and chest. You wouldn’t think it’d be possible to scream the entire 3 miles home, but it is!

So tell us father of the genius, when do they outgrow this "genius" phase?

My two oldest grandsons are 14 and 11, so I'm getting to watch this from a whole new perspective, it's sad, and I know I'm going to hell for finding it as amusing as I do from time to time.

My best jumps involved single-stacked house bricks with a scrap piece of 1/2" plywood set in front of a huge pile of burning leaves. I was no idiot.....I was certified daredevil and I have the scars to prove it.

My cousin, whose shirt I once accidentally set on fire during an epic roman candle war, called me an idiot and some other things.
