On a hot sunny day Joe sits looking out a large window. He decides to go outside. Then from the kitchen comes the voice of his mother. She tells him "remember your sun screen." he sighs and puts on sunscreen. Awhile later he comes in for a snack. He is told to wash his hands. His mother notices that he didn't use enough soap. She makes him wash for 10 minutes. Joe goes on the computer. His mother sits right next to him watching his every keystroke. She checks his email. She goes on his friend's facebooks and blogs. She then allows Joe to access them. The final straw came when Joe gets a call from his friend asking him to sleep over. Joe's mother says "OK just give me 3 page essay about who your friend is and give a minute by minute agenda of what you will be doing." finally Joe has had enough. He says in a slightly raised voice "no I will not do that my rides here right now and I'm gonna go." he begins to walk out the door. As he's getting into a car his mother inquires loudly "You're riding in a car don't forget your helmet."

I am reading a book where the main character has overprotective parents. I think that has very humorous possibilities. For this weeks award I nominate Brian http://www.waystationone.com/ and Maha http://lostmelody-m.blogspot.com/
