So I'm About to Drive The Magic School Bus Back to Boston

Since, as you may or may not know, I am a non-working woman, I still get the awesomeness that is Spring Break, and I still use it to drive my Mazda back to Scranton, PA and watch old seasons of Grey's Anatomy with my mom. Who needs Cancun anyway? I've got an old abandoned coal town with no hope that SNL called a "genetic cesspool."

But I'm returning to Boston today, towing along little bro Dave (turning 21 soon), who is a cool kid. I'm happy about this. Then I get the call from Dave that his other friend is coming, and bringing his girlfriend, who is apparently still in highschool.

Okay, I'm still down with this. I'm taking a car to Boston anyway, I don't really mind if there's some extra underage people in it. Plus odds are I'll get gas money. Then Dave tells me we are going to pick her up at my high school, where we may have to sign her out. Excuse me, did I give birth and not notice? When did I become a soccer mom taking the brood on a family vacation to Boston?

However, I'm a good person, so I don't complain. Until we get the call that Dave's friend's little sister (getting younger and younger) who is MY little sister's age (that would be 16) and friend, wants to come along too.

NOW I'm basically driving the Magic Mazda back to Boston with this car full of kids, and probably morphing into a curly haired kindergarten teacher named Ms. Frizzle along the way. I hope I get a dinosaur co-pilot too (it's definitely a dinosaur, right?) Wish me luck, kids.

    Ms. Frizzle was a hip, hip lady. Any girl should welcome such a flattering comparison.
