what's your sash say?

My daughter was telling us about a game her class plays in P.E. called "Secret Jogger." The teacher mentally decides who gets this 'award' by picking from the kids who continuously jog (not walk or jump or hop) during a certain time period. We asked what happens next - does the class try to guess who the Secret Jogger is? No, the teacher just tells everyone. Does that student get a P.E.-related privilege? No. Is there a special Secret Jogger crown? Sign? Sash? No. No. *snicker* NO!

This led to a) defining "sash" and b) deciding what sashes we might all earn. Mason said Paige would have "Incredibly Dorky Sister" to which she immediately retorted he would get "Most Annoying Brother." I then announced mine would be "Long-Suffering Mother." And then, because we had previously discussed the procedure Stu went through so there would be no more babies made in this household, he was proclaimed "The Amazing Neutered Man." Gales of laughter all around.

Wouldn't we be the most entertaining family reality show?
