We are at a cross country meet on Saturday. Sam had to be there at 7:30AM and was running at 9:00AM. Phillip had to be there at 9:30AM and was running at 10:30. But to simplify life, I had Phillip go at 7:30AM with Sam.
We felt like Phillip’s race was coming up…and none of his team mates where there yet.
“Text them,” I told him.
“They are on the way,” he reported.
Then, we found out his race was still about 45 minutes out. I told him to text his friends back and let them know it’s not an emergency. I didn’t want to have parents in unnecessary panic.
“It is an emergency,” he said. “I am bored.”
