Simon's Blog - April 6, 2004
Of course I looked at the note before my parents did, duh! My teach wanted my 'rents to call her which made me a basket case all afternoon until my mom came home. When mom finally came home, she went up to her room and called my teach - and didn't come down for almost an hour! When she did come back down, she just smiled and told me to relax.
Dad came home and they holed up in their room again for, like, half an hour. At that point we were all starving and Joey got angry at me for holding dinner up. (That kid lives for food). Dad told Miguel to go order pizza and he and mom sat me down in the kitchen. It was, like, the most dramatic, weird thing ever. I felt like my parents had suddenly become secret agents or something, like those Spy Kid 'rents. Mom, told me that on Wednesday (tomorrow) I'm not going to class, but I should go right to the guidance counselor's office. I am gonna get tests done, or something. She and Dad were wicked nice all night and even took us all out for Ben and Jerry's after dinner - which never happens on a school night. Mom is taking the day off work tomorrow to go with me to the guidance counselor's office.
I am completely weirded out. Do they think I am a moron or something? What is going on here? What tests am I taking? Plus, do you know how uncool it is to spend the day with the guidance counselor? Only weird kids do that! What if Kara finds out? She'll totally stop liking me - and who could blame her? And things were going really well with her, too. I know I should chill and just see what happens but it's totally spazzing me out - especially the fact that dad is Mr. Nice Guy all of a sudden.
Wish me luck,
