My child is so hung over. She is seriously suffering from an excess of caffeine and sugar last night. Who knows how many sodas she downed. Rob saw her drink two in the space of a few minutes.
Last night's dance was very different. There were a bit over a hundred kids there and they were very well behaved. And, there were almost as many chaperones as kids. The music wasn't so great, even though it was the same dj as last time.
We heard two different stories about the low turnout. One was that the 8th graders boycotted the dance because they wanted it to be a couple of weeks ago for valentine's, so they went skating instead. The other was that the school enforced a rule that if the kids had an unexcused absence, they couldn't attend the dance unless a parent sent a note explaining the absence, which would change it to excused. If it's excused, the school district gets more federal funding. Unexcused absences count against them. Who knows.
Anyway, she had fun. She has a headache and weepy eyes and her ankle hurts and she hurt her neck dancing. Awwwwwwww. My heart goes out to her.
As far as I remember, the best cure for a hangover is yardwork, right?
And, loud music.
Have a great Saturday.
