The backstory: Last week, I was headed to a cross country meet in the middle of East Nowhere and so I opted to follow the bus in order to keep from getting lost. I watched the kids file into the bus and then caught sight of JT sitting with his friends in the very back of the bus. I texted my sister about the most obvious concern generated by this situation.
Me: Following the bus to cross country. JT is in the back and I am praying he doesn't flip me off.
KO: I kind of hope he does, lol.
Me: Right back at ya', sis.
He didn't flip me off, but reported later that was only because his friend V advised against it, asserting, "your mom is a nice lady." I'll take it.
