The kids were growing restless after only a few minutes and Boyfriend started in like kids do...
"Come on! Where is he? I want to go home!"
I did the Mom thing.... "He'll just be another minute, Bud, I promise... he's only getting a few things."
Boyfriend, clearly having heard this line before, was quick to snap back: "Yeh right. I know my Dad. He probably walked inside and found a couch somewhere and is taking a nap!"
And just like that, he gave me my favorite story of all time.
