Kids Today


My daughter and I had arranged for me to visit campus one Saturday.  I don’t mind the almost two hour drive up, if I can spend the day with my first born.  I let her know when I was on campus and she told me she’d meet me in front of her dorm.  We’d already decided we were going to lunch, and we were both hungry, so she hopped in and we headed to restaurant row.  We had a great meal and even better conversation.  I couldn’t wait to get back to campus and just hang out.  

When we approached her dorm she said, “Thanks Mom.  Tell Dad and Sissy I said Hi!”  

“What are you talking about?!  I just got here. I’m not leaving yet.”  

“Yeah, Mom.  You are.  We decided to go to lunch.  We’re not spending all day together, I have plans.”

Unbelievable.  I guess my plans were to drive two hours back home.  

Earlier than I thought.
