Well not quite a real date but Thing2 was supposed to go to a school dance last Friday with a friend, who happens to be a boy. Things didn't quite turn out as planned.
The friend, referred to as Z, managed to get himself sent home from school early on Friday. His Grandmother called his mom who was traveling on business and she grounded him. Z's mom then called us and let us know that he would not be going to the dance. Thing2 was upset. She called a girlfriend and they met at the dance and still had a good time.
Today Thing2 was waiting at school for Z. According to Z's mom, Thing2 "ripped him a new one". Not bad for a 13 year old. I knew that Hell hath no fury like a scorned women. Maybe it applies to teen girls as well.
