The ever vigilant and alert Mrs who was in ear shot immediately googled the apartment complex to learn ‘Full Sized Beds’. “When were you going to tell us? You have long single sized sheets from last year.“ -Trust me CH doesn’t know either what size bed he sleeps or what size beds come in
Kids today are forever on their phones - you would think they’ve got that whole communication thing beat. Absolutely not. For example Cool Hand will be 1 of 4 who have individual bedrooms and share a kitchen and a living room. One moved in last Friday only to learn that he will be alone until this Friday. Further you would think they would pool their resources so they don’t end up with 4 toasters. They have not.
Before you start with that he’s 19 needs and needs to man up and take charge. The Mrs minimizes expenses by sale and comparison shopping like no one else. For example Kohl’s had 30% off today, an hour and half and $140 later we are good to go.
I’m ok to let CH focus on classes -life will get complicated soon enough.
Perhaps because my own on a ‘wing and a prayer’ college experience I envy the Cool Hand because he doesn’t have to sweat the small stuff. No debt, private room, girlfriend , a set of wheels.. life is pretty sweet. Ah to be young...
DD will start evening classes again next week and with CH gone the house will grow quiet. That’s ok too. The only certainty of life is change oh an perhaps Taxes.
Ds' learning would be much better if the Mrs had let the issue alone.
Imagine him and a nice gal coming to his room late at night, her seeing the small sheet on a full size bed...
"Thank you, Cool Hand Luke, I'd rather sleep at my room.."
or him running around last minute to borrow some full size sheets...
