"I have the most exciting news to tell you. You can't tell anyone. Not Mandy if you see her tomorrow. No one. It's a total secret," Hunter says the minute I pick up the phone.
"Do tell," I say.
"Well, tomorrow Shane is picking me up and we are going kayaking on the oldest lake in the history of man.."
"I don't even know what that means."
"Just listen, we are going kayaking on the most historical waterway in the tri state area AND he's bringing mushrooms."
I glance in the rear view mirror to make sure the kids haven't heard this revelation through the cell phone. Thank God they're to busy chattering away about their crazy principal and how he was on the news last night (for nothing g00d).
"I'm not sure what to say to that. Congratulations."
"You don't even know how happy I am. So happy. Kayaking, historical lakes, mushrooms. This is the happiest I've been since I've been here." she gushes.
Go get 'em Tiger.
I love you Man. Now shut up about the bees.
