I had a meeting tonight. I met with the other members of the Primary (kids at church) presidency, the music director and pianist, to discuss the upcoming Primary program. It was to start at 8 pm and last a half hour. (That would be amazingly short...) I didn't want to be there too long, so I told Ryan to shoot me a text message after a while. This is something we do for each other, in case a meeting drags on and we need an excuse to leave.
At 9 pm sharp, I got this message:
"If you don't come home soon I am going to wake up all the kids, make them cry, and feed them chocolate and marshmallows and soda, and get them dirty. See you soon."
I laughed out loud. Good thing I was already in the car, ready to come home. (This is not a typical example of Ryan's reason-to-escape text.)
