So I'm supposed to pick up Evan from FB practice @ 5, right?
I looked at the clock 30 minutes ago & was like "OH SHIT! I forgot to get my baby!"
Then I remembered it's game night tonight. So he won't be back from "Away" until 8 or so.
When practice first started, I didn't know what time to pick him up. So I got there @ 4ish and he had gotten someone else to drive him home I got pissed and told him to STAY THERE UNTIL I GET THERE. NO RIDES WITH PEOPLE I DON'T KNOW!.
That had been fine until last week when 1) practice ended early and b) it was Trail of Tears weekend here so half of the roads were blocked off. I was driving around everywhere and calling people to ask them where the eff my son was.
Let's get this straight. I don't panic. I get pissed, LOL.
So I went to my mother's house to see if he ended up there somehow and as I knocked on the door, I got a text from him saying "I'm home. Where are you??"
He had walked home.
This is why I told him to take his effing cell phone with him to school. Just keep it OFF until after practice so if it ends early, he can call me.
So yesterday, I was getting ready to go get him and he walks in the door.
He walked home again.
Fine. He could use the exercise. I was especially happy that he got home before I got in the car to waste my gas in a pointless trip to go get him.
Tonight is an "Away" game. Last time I think I showed up at his school @ 7 and sat there reading by interior light for 30 minutes until they got back.
I told him to take his damned phone with him today. I told him where, on school grounds, he can get a good signal to call me.
I don't want him walking home in the dark.
But if he'd walk home after every practice I might have a cooked meatloaf or some friend chicken waiting for him.
Probably not. But I wouldn't have to leave the house, at least.
BTW, that is NOT my son's team. I don't know who they are. Just some other Middle School football team. Sue me. Not that you'd get anything...
