In case you haven't guessed already, we took Kyle to his new college (U.W. Milwaukee) on Saturday.
This is how we found the refrigerator in his dorm:
At least it was clean,
(which is more than I can say for the floor, which was pretty disgusting).
It's a good thing I'm not that mom, who feels compelled to run around micromanaging her son's move-in.
(His last dorm-mate's parents came in and cleaned the whole place, made his bed
(with his Pokemon blankey, I might add) and stayed long after we had left.)
Hey, cleaning is character-building, right?
No, I did not clean. Instead, I averted my gaze from the dust bunnies and garbage on the floor
to the view from Kyle's window, which incidentally faces Lake Michigan, a half-mile down the road.
Kyle said he wasn't hungry and didn't need lunch, which was probably code for
"Okay, get out of here now-- I need to scope-out some chicks."
We left but took a little cruise toward the lake and found this,
just a few blocks from the dorm--Whole Foods!
(Or, as my niece affectionately calls it, "Whole Paycheck".)
We purchased some provisions for that empty fridge and bought a gift card for Kyle,
who was meanwhile unpacking his duffel bag. A moment later, I received a text:
"The baby scared the crap out of me!"
[insert evil laugh here]
Yes, Mr.4444 had put a little surprise for Kyle in his bag before we left the house:
So, Kyle met us at the door to the dorm with an "empty" but suspiciously-lumpy duffel bag,
and we exchanged the groceries for his "baby brother".
I can't wait to send him a Care Package.
