Stephanie was the first one up the next morning. She opened the blinds to let in the overcast morning light and made coffee for her bleary-eyed friends. We reminisced about the night before: who no-showed, who made us laugh, who probably had the worst hangover. And then, over a hearty breakfast of Steph’s steak and eggs, we watched a laughably bad movie.

Hours later, when David arrived to collect me, Stephanie turned to me and raised her brows. Without having to hear it aloud, I answered her question: “I wouldn’t have missed it for all the Jack and Coke in the world.”

You know youngster, you sounded surprised that the Mom got the "booty call." Just because your hair has a little seasoning and you are a bit seasoned doesn't mean you've abandoned life's simple pleasures. Go Mom! Fun column, I've followed for years and find your writing quite well seasoned.

I like to pretend that all mothers are chaste. ;) Thanks, Kansaskid!
