What do you do when your teenage sons ask...

What or how do you react when your teenage sons ask if they can polish the trailer? You give them the polish, cloth and say have at it! More surprising is it was in the mid 80's and HUMID. I am shocked that they want to do it. I need to get the compounder and cyclo out, take advantage of the opportunity before they figure out there is A LOT of aluminum there.

Might well have something to do with girls in the neighborhood, and ones who might drive by. Boys (and men) like to look studly for the girls.

I know when I was younger I would ask to to do some extra things and then turn around and ask for some thing that I most likely wouldn't have received. I figured while the folks were in a good mood, I would hit them with what ever I wanted. Try to think, what could they possibly want or use? Maybe taking your Airstream out for the weekend with some buddies since they put all that hard work into polshing?

Better hold off on the compliments until you find out what they really want.
