What Boyfriend?

"You didn't tell me about the boyfriend!" Our school registrar exclaimed today.

"I already told him we could only be friends."


"Nothing. What boyfriend?"

"Your daughter's boyfriend's mother registered him yesterday. She asked for you. She was disappointed you weren't here."

"Huh." I replied. "I told her she couldn't have a boyfriend until she was 25. I guess we'll have to have a talk."

Later in the day, I noticed a tall, skinny teenager and recognized her as my oldest child. "Hey, stranger!" I called. Then I geared up to have the whole too-young-have-a-boyfriend talk but she beat me to the conversation starter.

"So I was sitting in Spanish yesterday and Erik's mom called me," she started, "She wanted to know your first name."

"Because she was registering Erik?" I asked innocently.

"Yeah. But at first I was so terrified because I was afraid she'd found your blog!"

  1. Ouch. That was harsh.
  2. I just found leverage but still...
  3. What's wrong with my blog?!
