What Was He Going to Eat?

Cory had a really long day today. He left the house a little after 7:10 this morning, and he had Forensics practice after school and then pep band at the basketball game. As he was walking out the door this morning, I asked him if he had packed extra food - and he hadn't, just lunch as usual. By then it was too late to do anything. I offered to grab him an apple, but he said he'd be OK.

Then this afternoon, Beth said she was going to go to school and give Cory a ride home. Actually, she was going to get her grades straightened out. Looking at her grades, she should have gotten a 3.0 for the semester, but for some odd reason, it said 2.88 or something like that. Not a huge deal, except that she needs that 3.0 to qualify for the good student discount on the car insurance. Since she's out of school now and won't be going to WCTC until the fall semester, she doesn't have another chance to get that 3.0. She needs her report card to reflect that now. So she was going to get that straightened out. She just decided to time it so she could also give Cory a ride home.

I told her that Cory wasn't coming home, so he didn't need a ride. But, if she was going to go anyway, would she take Cory a sandwich? She agreed, so I made Cory a sandwich and packed him some cookies and sent them along. Beth got her grades figured out, and the guidance counselor is going to write a letter with the correct GPA listed, so we can forward that to the insurance agent. Cory got his sandwich, and it's a good thing. We didn't hear from him until about 8:30 when he called to say he needed someone to come pick him up. This is the boy who has to have a snack when he gets home from school, and he's still ready for dinner when it's time for that. How did he think he was going to survive all day without packing extra food?

He seemed rather appreciative when he got home. :)

  1. That's a great idea, discounts on car insurance for good students.. UK should do something like that.
