The Things Kids Say

I was "that" lame mom today

Today, I totally was THAT lame mom in front of about 15 middle school kids.   AND I am so happy about that!

It was the perfect afternoon for meeting a few friends at the park after school.  Sorry friends who don't live in SoCal, we had pretty awesome weather this week.   Anyway,  I volunteered to drive over to the nearest Starbucks and get our sleep deprived bodies some caffeine.  As I drove past the middle school located near the coffee shop, I cringed. Not because I don't like adolescents,  but because I knew that there would be a LONG line at Starbucks.  It's a thing around here, kids seem to flock to the nearest Starbucks after school!

Ok, so I park and go into the Starbucks and sure enough I'm #100 in line, well, ok #10, behind 9 middle schoolers.   Behind me, a bunch of middle school boys.  The funniest part was that I think every kid in there was taller than me!  I didn't mind my place in line too much until the 3 boys behind me started talking.  They were APPALLING!   Ok, I know, boys "are like that" you may say...."Oh you must never get out" or "that's just what kids say these days," but honestly I was taken by surprise.  I will spare you all the details, but basically they were joking abut RAPE!  To both sexes!
