Conner told us last night that there was going to be a dance after school this week, and that he wanted to go. It went a little something like this:
“Um, there’s this dance after school and it’s sometime this week, either Tuesday or Wednesday or Thursday or Friday. It’s either $4 or $10 or I’m not sure. I think it’s in the afternoon…”
We told him to stop speaking and come back to us when he had the facts. As he’s getting ready to go to bed tonight, he remembers the topic….
“Oh, I found out about the dance. It’s Thursday from 3:15 to 3:40, or something, and it’s $4 and the last day I can buy a ticket is tomorrow.”
We told him we doubted that there was a dance that was being held for a mere 25 minutes, and wanted to know what the correct time was. Apparently, the announcements are made over the intercom. He said he heard the start time, but not the end time. Why didn’t he ask someone if they caught the end time information?
“I did! I asked the girl sitting next to me…”
And what did she say?
