Troy Freaked Me Out!
Ok so I am driving to the mountains with our staff for our annual staff retreat. It is pouring rain as we wind up the side of the mountain. I was keeping close contact with my phone because my son had his first football game as a middle schooler. It is freaky to me to think that I have a middle schooler! Ugh I feel old! Anyway, I was a little nervous that my 11 year old was playing his first game and I was not there. Troy was there but Mommy was not. I knew that Troy would update me on anything I needed to know. Just then the text messages started coming in. Keep in mind I am driving in the rain, up a mountain with a car full of people!
Here are the text messages in order:
-The boys Colby is playing against are BIG
-Colby’s team is getting killed
-Colby is going in the game
-Colby just got popped
(a really long pause as I drive up the mountain, where is the next text message, is my boy ok?—-silence)
(finally after a couple of minutes Troy responds to my continual texts)
-Colby is fine, he’s just laid out!
Now PA-LEEZ! Who would text that to the mother of your children????? With a long pause and no further explanation? I think not! I think I am still recovering from that! Troy freaked me out! And in turn I freaked out all of the people who were riding in my car when the text came in. Ok, so I needed to look at the road but it was my baby boy! Whew!
By the way, Colby is fine. I just talked to him on the phone and he did have a little headache but he is fine. “He is just laid out” is still running through my head though. I love my boy!
