The Man and I had to make a decision this morning we shouldn't have.
We have decided to keep Paige home from high school today.
Why, you ask?
Because it was stated yesterday that if Obama won, then certain individuals would be showing up at school today with guns blazing to take out those who supported him.
I was in shock when I heard this. Seriously?
I know this is a huge high school with many different cultures walking the halls, but seriously?
When Neighbor Greg called the school early this morning to address this, he received a call back saying that they had "heard of these rumors but didn't have names so they couldn't pursue it and they really didn't know what the fuss was over something so trivial".
Both Paige and Britt want to go and see what goes down, they just don't want to be shot. Can't say I blame them. Kids are an emotional bunch and I'm sure if no guns are involved? There'll be issues to settle as the day progresses.
All I know? When I write this excuse tomorrow? It better not be rejected.
I am appalled that this has happened and we had to make this choice.
