Overheard at the dinner table:
M: “Would you like to go to Maine for your birthday? D: Ok, but who would take care of Meatball? M: We should just take him, we shouldn’t coddle him forever. We could probably just make it a day trip. D: We could, but there wouldn’t be enough meals for us to eat all we want to eat…”
I have very ambivalent feelings about this trip. On one side, I would love to be a part of a food trip – I love food too! Also I would get to spend the entire time with both my mom and dad. On the other hand, I really really hate being in a new environment. I will probably just be shaking and refusing to get out of the car the whole time. If I stay, I will feel safe and comfortable at home, but I will miss my mom and dad, not to mention lobsters and blueberry pie. Que sera, sera!
Life Lesson: Sometimes when the choice is between bad and badder, it is almost a relief when the choice is taken away from you – that way at least you can blame somebody else for the bad outcome.
