I missed that in pre-school

Backstory: I’m almost 40.

Mom: Where are you today?

Me: Lynchburg, Virginia

Mom: Oh that sounds fun.

Me: I’m going to run and get a salad for dinner

Mom: Are you leaving the hotel?

Me: Yes.  I’m going across the street

Mom: Well don’t talk to strangers

Me: Thanks, I missed that in pre-school.

Mom: One of these days someone will kidnapp you and I’ll have to get money together to get you back.

      I’m working in Lynchburg right now. So far it has been dismal as heck! I travel for work and my mom and dad still worry about me. I hope they never stop. :)

      Knowing Lynchburg, that’s actually a legitimate concern for a mother of children any age to have.

      My favorite part of this is that your mom things Lynchburg “sounds fun.” God bless her.

      I grew up in lynchburg, and if I were a kidnapper, I’d choose another, slightly richer city to pull my victims-for-ransom from.

      No matter if some one searches for his necessary thing, therefore he/she needs to be available that in detail, so that thing is maintained over

      Hi there all, here every one is sharing such know-how,
      thus it’s good to read this webpage, and I used to
      go to see this website every day.

      I do not even know the way I ended up here,
      however I assumed this publish was once good. I don’t know who you are but certainly you’re going to a
      famous blogger in case you are not already. Cheers!
