“You must be crazy.  You mean to tell me she had the temerity to tell you that you need to monitor your kids more?”  Sally shook her head.  “I mean talk about needing to look in the mirror.  She has no room to talk with her son suspended last month for alcohol in his locker.”

“I know what Kevin and Kelly did was wrong, but it wasn’t for anything illegal like underage drinking AND drinking at school.  It was an alcohol-free party that just got too crowded and too loud.”  Mary looked tired.  She had been on the phone with parents most of the night.  “So what, the police came and broke up the party.  I know there is no gathering larger than 25 people outdoors allowed but everyone had on masks.  I just kind of wish I knew which neighbor called the police.”
