Joey called me and said, “Pick me up at Ms. Nikki’s. Mom’s bein’ mean.”
He was ready when I pulled up at the house.
“What’s wrong with your mom,” I asked. “She mad coz I arranged for some one else to pick you up yesterday after school?”
“Are you kidding me? I didn’t tell her. She thought you brought me home.”
“Then, why was she bein’ mean?”
“She couldn’t find her belt. She started yellin’ at me so I said you were here and I went to Ms. Nikki’s.”
I laughed and patted him on his back. “You’re too much.”
