Daddy’s Little Girl

“Dad, can’t you do something?  Mom wants to put me under house arrest for the rest of my senior year!  I am going to miss the homecoming dance with Rob, Kevin and Stephanie.  PLEASE, can you talk to her.  She just won’t see reason.”

“Laura, you were caught drinking, that is a pretty serious thing.  Your lucky it was your mom and not the cops that found out because then Rob would have been in even bigger trouble for the false ID.  You have to understand we could also get in trouble since you were drinking here.  And think about what would have happened if Rob drove home and caused an accident.  This is serious honey, and you need to realize that.  But I will talk to your mom about the dance.”

“Oh, thank you Dad!  You are the best.  And I know it was stupid of me, but I swear I have learned my lesson.”

“We’ll see.”
