Ah, so familiar. Thanks for the chuckle!

Tomorrow morning I'll be laughing my ass off thinking about this...

...after my blood pressure drops back to normal, anyway.

This is an entry from last year, but the twins started summer school today. The bus never showed up! It was to be their first bus ride and they were so excited. After a half hour they said she took a wrong turn. An hour later, we were told it broke down and we'd have to drive them. Booo.
