This post is just too great not to share. Some laughs and possibly reflections for your Friday. Thank you to my sweet friend, Kelly (RED DIRT KELLY!) for sharing these memories and giggles. And to you, Kelly, I would say….don’t wait until you are 80 for that park bench meeting ♥ (I thought of my son as I read this! oh my!)
Somewhere over the Arkansas-Louisiana border at 40,000 feet I was startled out of my daydreaming state by an announcement coming over the cabin microphone: “Kelly from Edmond? Would you please turn on your call light?”
“Cripes,” I thought to myself. Then I said it aloud. “Cripes! I probably dropped my wallet or something.” I was talking half to myself and half to an OSU student I had met who had lots of questions about flying.

Better than fiction! Your friend has the patience of Job. None of my K-4th graders EVER got themselves into THAT much mischief.

I know! Who could make this stuff up?!?!? (I’m sure she will find your comment.) Having two sons….and all their friends….we could relate on so many levels! lol! A great post from Kelly…..
I hope she is writing a book! She’s got a great style, and she must really relate to kids.
Kelly, “Mrs. Roberts”, rocks.
I agree. I look forward to getting to know her better. Did you meet her blogging?
We grew up in the same little town in Oklahoma. Of course, she was the youngster…. 🙂
I found your comment! Just wanted to say that I, too, had my car in high school turned sideways with exiting becoming an impossibility!
Your kids must really love you!!!
