I can’t believe I got roped into this.

It’s absolutely humiliating.

And the fact that Sergeant Myers is out there with a video camera isn’t helping.

Seriously, I did not sign on for this.

I’m just here because David’s dad got the mumps.

Jerk. Nice timing. Who gets the mumps these days?

And aren’t these kids vaccinated?

Couldn’t he have done it anyway?

He’s got to be faking it. I know I would. He’s probably off in the Caribbean or something.

Bastard.

Then again, he did sign up for this. And he is one of those guys.

You know, the artsy types.

Maybe he is actually sick.

Maybe.

But still.

What about all the other parents?

Why couldn’t they do it?

Why did it have to be me?

I asked Sara that tonight as we got ready, and she just laughed. She knew better than to answer. She knew I know damn good and well why I’m doing this.

It’s because Charlie gave me his super sad eyes face and said please.

What do you say to that besides yes?

And so I’m here, at my kid’s Christmas play, with bells on.

Literally.

Oh, the things we do for love.
