While The Boy is gone, I get sporadic emails. The trip was supposed to be from April 9th to the 25th.
I was wondering how he was going to manage being with 'the family' for that long but he was gung-ho about it.
I also worried about him driving through the states. I am sure you are all really nice people but I have CNN and I am programed to think you are all crazy psycho axe-murderers, don't blame me.
I told the boy, please when you stop for the night, just drop me a line so I know you are not chopped up and stuffed in the trunk of some car. For the most part he did and I was thankful for it.
I figured once he arrived in Florida I would not hear from him as often because, I would hope, he was having too much fun.
These are the emails I get from Florida:
April 12- I ask him if he is having fun and that I hope he is taking a lot of pictures.
yep ive been takin some pictures but dad dont got the drivers for his cam on here so ill show them to you when i get back
April 13- I tell him that Sammy misses him and that the school's automated system keeps calling to inform me that he is skipping school.
i told my teahcers you told them i was goin away
yull have to call them back and tell them to fuck off
April 14- I email him, since he is already sitting at the computer he could give me a little more info about what he is doing, I can't tell if he is having a decent time or not. Did he get my email about Sammy?
yeah i got the email about samy thats funny
went to universal today and it sucked i cant stand being around (his little brother) he getting on my nerves
I get nothing for a day, I figure he is busy having fun. Then this.
find me a fuckin plane ticket home (with a little angry emoticon added to the end)
Now what? I email back, but get no more response. Then just about half an hour ago, I get a call.
It's The Boy, he is in Georgia.
"What do you mean, you're in Georgia?"At first I thought he fucked off hitch-hiking or some foolish thing.
"We are on our way home." Thank god he said 'we'.
"Why what happened?"
"Nothing, we are just on our way home."
"But you weren't supposed to be home for another week, something must have happened."
"Dad wanted to leave early, says traffic is bad in New York on the weekend."
Ya, right. Cut your Florida vacation by a week, to avoid weekend traffic in New York? Except wouldn't his present course put him in New York for the weekend?
I am sure in TBF's mind it makes perfect sense.
