The other day someone at a store in our town read that a Methamphetamine lab had been found in an old farmhouse in the adjoining county and he asked me the rhetorical question “Why didn’t we have a drug problem when you and I were growing up?”

My reply:
“I had a drug problem when I was young:
I was drug to church on Sunday morning.
I was drug to church for weddings and funerals.
I was drug to family reunions and community socials no matter the weather.
I was drug by my ear when I was disrespectful to adults.
I was drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents, told a lie, brought home a bad report card, did not speak with respect, spoke ill of the teacher or preacher, or if I didn’t put forth my best effort in everything that was asked of me.
I was drug to the kitchen sink to have my mouth washed out with soap if I uttered a profanity.
I was drug out to pull weeds in mom’s garden and flower beds and cockleburs out of dad’s field.
I was drug to the homes of family, friends and neighbours to help out some poor soul who had no-one to mow the yard, repair the clothesline or chop some firewood, and, if my mother had ever known that I took a single dime as a tip for this kindness, she would have drug me back to the woodshed.

Those drugs are still in my veins and they affect my behaviour in everything I do, say or think. They are stronger than cocaine, crack or heroin; and, if today’s children had this kind of drug problem, the country would be a better place.”

God bless the parents who drugged us.

Amen to that PP! Now there's a drug we thought was a problem then, but now we know that they all added up to good.

Oh yes, so true..

But let me ask you one thing. Did your mom just wash your mouth out with soap, or did she like mine, make you bite the bar of soap so you really got the lasting effects??

I don't think it took more than once treatment.:(
