Got It

A phone conversation

Me: Hey buddy. How're you doing?

Gabe: Great!

Me: Wonderful. I hear you're making cards for your teachers?

Gabe: Yep.

[Thirty seconds of silence while I wait for elaboration.]

Gabe: Look, here's what's gonna happen. Tomorrow is Wednesday. There's going to be dismissal. I will take the bus to [daycare]. I'll play for a while, then you pick me up. Got it?

Me: I don't know why I ever think I'm in charge.
