Text message from Son2:

I had a drink at R.'s, so I probably shouldn’t drive home in a bit here. Is the car okay in front of your house until the morning?


What I wanted to text back:

What did you drink? Maybe you can drive in a few hours again? You are drinking quite often now, hey? Are you dressed warm enough to walk home, it’s -25. Do you have your scarf and toque? What about gloves? Are you going to carry your laundry hamper home? What about your new Xbox? Did you get it set up? Will the cold hurt it? What kind of shoes are you wearing? Are you keeping your apartment warm enough? You know frost bite comes fast at -25.


What I texted back:

I don’t see why not.
