On Friday one of my students told me he wanted me to come to his birthday party this weekend. I’ve been to a couple of his football games, so I understand why he might think I’d come to a birthday party. But I don’t do birthday parties for various reasons, so I politely declined and that was that. He never even told me when or where it was.
Skip to today and I was taking my own children to a jump park. We got our bands and were walking in when I hear someone shout my name. Sure enough there he is with his mom and friends.
What’s the next thing he says to me?
“I told you you were gonna come to my party!”
