First of all, for those who had troubles *ahem* finding the bulldog...
See it NOW??
I like this picture today because in real life, it's all cloudy foggy. But enough with the weather updates.
Today is Senior Lunch day for Wolfgang's high school. Senior Lunch is held at a fancy 5-star restaurant in a fancy 5-star hotel for seniors and parents. It's dress up. It lasts for hours. It's pompous. It's voluntary. It's happening as I type. I'm not there, thank goodness.
Don't get me wrong, we're very happy with Wolfgang being on the verge of high school graduation. It's just... Magnum and I... we don't really DO pompous.
Last year was pretty easy with Chaco. He doesn't do pompous either, nor did his techy friends. He was happy to do Day Off from School in lieu of Senior Lunch. I wasn't sure about Wolfgang. He really doesn't do pompous either, but his social circle does include some pomposity. When I asked him a couple of weeks ago, I thought I might need to do some bargaining.
But, he pretty much was in a take-it-or-leave-it position, and I had him at "day off".
Little does he know that I had a few more bargaining chips. If he'd wanted to go, I would've offered him the cash amount of his lunch ticket. If he'd really wanted to go, I would've offered him the cash amount of mine AND his ticket. If he'd really really wanted to go, he would've been offered the full amount of all three of our lunch tickets.
And if he'd still wanted to go, we would've gone.
But I had him at "day off".
The rest, he doesn't need to know about.
