My mom didn’t know that I went with my friends to the city.
I told her that we were hanging out at someone’s house but we actually spent the day downtown.
I knew my mom would totally freak out if she knew that we left Glenview City Limits and headed south. I didn’t think she was ever going to find out until my friends and I missed the last bus home at the end of the day. We took the bus from Glenview into the city. We planned to take the last bus of the day back to Glenview. It was really cold and we were hanging out inside of a cafe. We lost track of time and realized that we were running late for the last bus. We were running down the street as the bus was pulling away from the station. We drew straws to see who was going to call our parents to tell them what happened. My dad works at a heating and AC repair business in the city. I decided to call him. I thought maybe he would be the path of least resistance, because he does not live at home with my mom and I anymore. I was hoping my dad would do me a favor. He told me that he would leave work at the heating and AC repair business and come pick all of us up. We waited downtown for nearly an hour until my dad was finished with the AC repair. When he picked my friends and I up, he made everyone of us call our folks including my mom.
