Wayward Son

Look who took a train home from Philly!
The Augster.
He said his hellos and then?
He was off and running.
I got to talk to him while he was buckling up.
I think it was a 91 second chat.
Aaaaaannnd. Buh-bye mama.
Maybe I'll get another visit with him today before he goes back to school.
And I'll cherish it. All 92 seconds.

Daryl said...

And he didnt bring his dirty laundry? I am impressed.

Ann Marie said...

Yup sounds just like my son.. only he is a senior in HS.. the fleeting moments of conversation are crazy but I hold on to every one of them.

Flea said...

Awww...so sweet of him to drop in for a minute and a half. Is be buzzing out to see a girl? We need to know these things. She has to pass your blogger friends inspection.

91 whole seconds? Wow! Don't you love quality time with the kids!

Did he bring his laundry?

OMG! I was just in NYC because my eldest son got married. My middle son was there from Michigan - he's going to grad school there. I swear I did not have one conversation with him in 3 days. He was on the phone with his GF, playing Wii with my niece, going for rides in a Shelby with his uncle, and playing Mafia Wars on the Internet. I guess seeing with our own eyes that they are well is supposed to sustain us?

Do I see a hickey on his neck?

TSannie said...

Hmmmmmm...GIRLS!

Mary said...

Aww, that's so cute! We were in Philly on Saturday and my daughter ran into a friend who is a freshman at 'Nova. We also went past the 'Nova campus after we toured Haverford. Now that's a beautiful campus!

He's loving his independence, huh? Good for him and for you. You've done a good job, Mama.

Ha don't you just love it when they come home to visit and just pass through long enough to grab the food out of the fridge and the keys out of your hand?

Starwoodgal said...

Just long enough to get the laundry done? Hmmm?

My brother would hitch-hike home very weekend and then expect my father to drive him back to college (5 hours away one way). Dad drove him down to the highway on Sunday and said' you got here on your thumb, go back on your thumb." He was too lonely and eventually gave up school that far away from home. Much to my parents dismay.

Oh! I forgot to tell you that when they come home for visits, it's to visit their friends, LOL! Luckily, as the years pass, they come home to see only you...

imom said...

Hi.... Bye!!

Camellia said...

I guess home on the train means no laundry? If he brought home his laundry, you could be close to his clothes while he was out and about.

Suz Broughton said...

That's funny. The funniest part as you were taking photos of him for that 90 secs. LOL!

diane said...

I'm so glad you got to see him... even if only for a moment or two!

Debbie said...

LOL, this is what I've been living with for a LOOOONNNNGGGGG time! Those moments are what we live for girl!

Sassy said...
