My son’s got a hockey game tonight. His mom is going to bring him to the game; I’m going to bring the hockey gear and meet them there.
There’s a risk when we do it that way that the boy gets there and isn’t able to play because I don’t show up with his equipment, but that’s never actually happened. In fact, I’m almost always there first.
In spite of that fact, he says to me this morning, “Get there early tonight so we don’t have a situation like last week.”
I say, “We didn’t have a ‘situation’ last week. I got there exactly the same time you did.”
“Just get there early,” he says.
