Mixed Messages

The principal and I were having lunch on the quad today with a student who was restricted to campus after too many late arrivals after lunch (and sometimes not returning to school at all...).

I asked where her boyfriend was, since he, too, had lost the privilege of off-campus lunch.

"He should be here in a minute," she replied.

And then she added that her boyfriend had just sent a text message to her father, accidentally, landing on her name in his cell phone contacts list and not noticing the "dad" part at the end.

"I love you, Baby," he wrote.

"Thanks," responded the girl's dad, "But I don't know how my wife would feel about that..."
