Connor hands me a pamphlet today about a fund-raiser-braai at school tomorrow.
I realise I am not terribly popular, or have a very busy schedule but even I have plans for tomorrow.
Without being dismissive of my sons ability to hand me a notice at the very last moment, I read through the notice and gave it the due time and concentration it deserves.
Point three was in UPPER CASE:
NO ALCOHOL IS PERMITTED TO BE CONSUMED ON SCHOOL PROPERTY.
I look at Connor.
Me: This braai says I can’t drink wine!!
Connor: I will tell them you can’t make it.
I am proud of my son in all sorts of ways right now.
