Mom did not go to work today. Techinically, she is not supposed to work on Fridays, unless she has training, or she is making up a snow day, or they had a Monday holiday and they have to make it up, or she is getting her room in shape for her inspections, but techinically,officially, she is supposed to have Fridays off.
So mom stayed home with me today. After we saw dad off we spent the morning eating chex mix and watching cartoons, just chillaxing you know, when all of a sudden there was this BIG, LOUD KABOOM! It wasn't thunder. It wasn't the train stopping. It wasn't a car wreck. I did not know what it was but I was going to go get that blast. Mom seemed very unconcerned. She just looked at the clock and said:"Oh that's right they were blowing up the bridge today!"
What?! Yes, there is a major bridge that mom and dad take almost everyday. It is the bridge that goes to my favorite drug store. I love riding over the bridge. But it was old and needed replaced, so in November they closed the bridge down and today they blew it up. I don't care that they blew the bridge down because now when I go to the drug store, it takes us even longer to get there and you know I love a car ride. But mom and dad say they have to leave the house even earlier to get to work on time because of the new traffic patterns. I guess it must be hard being a human.
