“Dad, a friend wants me to go to the lake this weekend and I want to go.”
“Well, you do realize that you have State Track this weekend, right?”
“Yeah. Not going.”
“What?! You qualified!”
“Yup. And I am not going.”
“Why do you think I will agree to this?”
“I have done every activity you wanted (true), I have done well in sports and school (also true), and you said that I got to choose what I do this summer (shit) — I want to go to the lake!”
Okay, that last statement sounded like Heather when she stubbornly decides something, meaning I don’t really have a choice — kinda scary.
I knew this day was coming. I just didn’t know she would use her mother’s tone to make her point. Pray for me.
