“Dad, I need some more details. It’s not going to work for me to just tell work that I’m going to Vegas to watch movies with my parents. What’s going on? Why do I have to be there within a month?”
“I never said anything about a month.”
“Yes, Dad, you did.”
“Well, we just want to see you, and we don’t want you to have any distractions.”
“I have to bring my family, Dad. I have to help Lannette with her medications.”
“Well, then, never mind. Just forget about it. We’ll call the whole thing off.”
I’m still shocked.
