- "I've been asked to homecoming"
I remain calm. I'm not ready for this. She's only 15. So I ask her who's the soon to be deceased boy? :-)
She smiles and says J.
Whew. She's known him for a couple of years and they have some of the same issues. He's a pretty good kid with nice parents. And then it hits me - what did you answer with?
Time for a new gun.
The wife was less than thrilled as Thing2 didn't have anything to wear. So they had to go shopping on Friday.
Ahh - Friday. High School Football. Thing2 likes the game and the activiites choir sings the national anthem before home games.
We lost. It's a rebuilding year with a new coach and a new philosophy. The mistakes are getting fewer and fewer. Next year will be a better year.
Saturday is dance day. We spend the afternoon with my father-in-law celebrating #82. He's just recoving from gallbladder removal so we only spent a few hours. On the way home I asked if anyone minded if I stopped and bought a new gun. Thing1 was all for it. The women said no.
J showed up right on time. Even had a corsage.
They looked pretty good together.
Thing1 and I picked them up afterwards. Both said they had a good time. And I survived.
