Question #2: And Exactly How Much Was That??
It turns out son #2 doesn’t owe anyone anything.
What he meant to say was, “I got there fine” (as in, “I arrived safely”).
The back story: he and a friend biked to school for the first time the other morning, and was under strict instructions to text Mom & Dad (me) when he got their.
I mean “there.” 🙂
P.S.: next task for spellcheckers: catching homonyms, e.g., “bark” (the sound a dog makes) vs. “bark” (the outer layer of a tree trunk).
