Deja Vu All Over Again

First day of summer school.  About 5 minutes before the ride to school shows, I knock for the third time on my son’s door, and finally open it a crack to see if it’s alive.  Sitting frozen in the middle of the disheveled bed is an equally disheveled man-boy in boxers and one sock.

You need to get going.  Uh, what are you doing?

“I’m looking for my pants.”

My eyelids close in slow motion and I vividly detect a sandy burn around the inside landscape of my eyes before saying,  That is an interesting vantage point for your search, son.

The usual stunning silence.

Slowly pulling the door closed, I perk up saying, Okay, good talk.

School is on and I am in deja vu purgatory.  How about YOU?

Love Matters,
Ce Eshelman, LMFT

     Inquiring minds want to know: yes, he found pants and caught his ride on time.

          Why do I so fret his timelines?
