He did it! He passed parallel parking and here he is with his brand-spanking-new license to drive!
So then he could barely contain himself. He had to drive by himself! Alone! Without me in the car! In fact, when I dropped him off at school he suggested I just leave the car there for him and I could walk home. Ha. That didn’t work out for him. But, when he got home from school (ON THE BUS), I sent him to the store, with a twenty–for a gallon of milk, and cheap cookies and punch for the 4-H meeting last night. Told him to bring me the change. He came back with no change. He bought all kinds of junk food and a half gallon of milk–had to downsize the milk to buy more junk food, I guess…. When he got home, his younger brother said–but I wanted ice cream, so 16 was only too happy to run back out to the store for ice cream. This time I gave him a ten and he came back with three bucks. (Some improvement from the previous store run, but still!) I said, that was some mighty expensive ice cream, and he said that he treated himself to the ice cream bar at the deli in the back while he was there….
Next time, I’m sending him with about a buck fifty!! :shocked:
