Hanging out in the kitchen after dinner, Zach asks...
Zach: Okay - Life Lesson question. So how do you know if it is okay to use something if it is a couple days past the expiration date?
Paul: It depends on what it is. Canned food is usually good for a while, but you have to be careful with meat and some dairy products.
Zach turns to me.
Zach: I also got a life lesson today on how to change a car's headlight.
Me: (dryly) Good for you. Special time with your dad.
Zach: Dad, so you know how to change a tire too?
Zach: Do you mom?
Me: Nope. That's what OnStar is for...
Zach laughs and Paul gives me a disapproving look.
Zach: Then what happens when OnStar expires?
Me: Then dad does it.
Zach: There is seriously - so much for me to learn how to do. How am I going to learn how to do all this stuff?
Zach: Will I be able to just call home and ask?
Me: Oh... of course.
Me: Or you could do what I did.
Zach: Marry someone who knows how to do all this stuff?
