"Wow, you look excited! Do you want to share with me what you learned at Career Day?"
"The speakers were pretty boring, I fell asleep." (of course) "But, I met someone really cool!"
"Oh yeah. Tell me about him." (I always assume it's a guy because if it was a GIRL, he would NEVER mention HER to me.)
"Mom, he is really really cool. We're the same age and we talked about everything! We have A LOT in common!
"You should bring him over the house."
"That's going to be a problem...He's in a juvie camp." (jail) "But, he's such a NICE guy mom. The camp let him and a couple of other guys come to Career Day with one of those police officers."
(At this point, I'm in total shock. I should get the Academy Award for pretending to be calm.)
"What did he go in for?"
"He mugged a few people and a he feels really bad about it." "Do you think we can have him come over for dinner?"
Based on that conversation, there is one more thing I know for sure about my son: He's HONEST with us about his friends. I don't know IF or WHEN Moe's friend will be out of "camp." But if he does, I'll just lock the valuables away...just in case.
