So Daniel came home last night for fall break. I haven’t seen him since August although I have spoken to him. Kevin wasn’t home yet but Keely, Daniel and I sat down for dinner. Actually I cooked a dinner. Yep, that’s why I’m such a good mom.
Me: so Daniel, tell me about your friends
Daniel: what about them?
Me: do you have friends?
Me: ok, so describe them
Daniel: well there’s this guy Nick
Daniel: he’s from somewhere outside New York City
Me: Long Island?
Me: and what’s Nick like?
Daniel: he’s in engineering in Pratt (Duke’s engineering school)
Daniel: he’s a nice guy
Me: okayyyyyy…anyone else?
Daniel: yeah, there’s this other guy (name escapes me)
Daniel: he’s in engineering too
Me: ok…what’s he like?
Daniel: he’s a nice guy
Me: seriously Daniel? Is that all you’re giving me?
Daniel: what more do you want?
Me: are they fun? Are they cute?
Daniel: they’re fun and how am I supposed to know if they’re cute
Me: good grief…how about girls?
Daniel: yeah, I know girls
Me: well, on your Facebook you said this one girl was your most favorite person in the world
Daniel: well, she wrote that on my phone when she was putting in her number
Me: so she’s not then?
Daniel: not what?
Me: your most favorite person in the world
Daniel: NOPE, you are mom
Keely: what? I thought I was!
Daniel: ummmmm …
Keely: after all, you’re mine Daniel
Me: hey, what about me?
Daniel: this is too complicated
Me: so let me get this straight. I know you’ve written 2 papers and taken 2 tests.
Me: … and I know you are playing club lacrosse and have at least 3 acquaintances
Me: and that’s all I’m going to get? That’s all my info?
Me: it’s been two months Daniel!
Daniel: I brought home my laundry
Me: oh. Excellent. I’m so excited!
Daniel: I knew you’d be happy
Me: have you changed your sheets ever?
Daniel: not yet
Keely: that’s disgusting
Me: why didn’t you bring them home?
Daniel: I don’t know. I forgot. I’ll change them when I get back
So there you are folks. THAT’S how much info you get from a boy. With the girls I knew who their friends were, what they did and all about their life. With Daniel, that’s as good as it gets. Jeez!
