New take on the game “telephone”

This never happens with the vents…

Modern Invention #4053: Fighting with each other: It’s what my boys do best. Frequently. Without reservation. When the verbal assault (“I hate you you poopy-head idiot!”) escalates to fists and kicks, that’s when I usually follow-up with the “I don’t care who started it: Both of you go to your rooms.” Generally, this is a good way for them to cool off. But in the last couple of weeks I’ve learned that this technique is neither a punishment nor a cooling off. The truth is it’s a means for them to simply continue their fight by shouting obscenities at each other through the HVAC vents. Joy.

This is also known as reason #4443 that I should just make the boys share a room.
