After a long day, i arrived home after 10 pm last night to find The Boy, The Girl and one of her friends relaxing on the back deck. Having been on the fly for several weeks, it was a relatively rare opportunity for me to catch up with happenings in their world… and was a nice pre-bedtime break from life.
The Boy offered up the highlight of his day…
The Boy: I helped a brother out today at the skate park.
daisyfae: Have you learned how to set broken bones?
The Boy: Some kid, maybe about fifteen, had left his cell phone there. I had picked it up and was trying to figure out who it belonged to when the guy called. He asked me to hang onto it til he got back.
daisyfae: Nice of you…
The Boy: So in the meantime, Sam and I went through his text messages. He seemed pretty hot and heavy for some chick, “Kaitlyn E”. But he had no game… I mean seriously, “Do you like movies?” What kind of lame pick up line is that? So we decided to help him out.
daisyfae: [turns back, grabs head, starts banging it against wall] Oh, shit… you didn’t?
The Boy: Sure we did! Sent her a text that said “Hey, What’s up, girl?” and started texting with her… Got her to agree to go out with him to a movie. So the guy shows up, just as we sent the last text. Handed him his phone and said “Hey, you may have plans for Friday night. Check your phone…” and left…
daisyfae: Aw, christ… was that really necessary?
The Boy: Mom, the kid was LAME. He’d tried to get her to go out with him before, but she blew him off, saying she had plans with some guy, Dave. So he writes back “Dave’s cool…. he’s a good guy”. Seriously. A guy with game would have written “Dave? He was hanging with Kaitlyn F. last I heard” or something like that.
daisyfae: ‘night [wanders inside, goes directly to bed…]
