oh, that rule!

We went to the big fundraiser at Nick's school today--it's a carnival, with rides, food for sale, an art market, a silent auction, all kinds of stuff. All four of us walked down together. Mariah saw several kids she knew from elementary school (this was, after all, her school, until five years ago) and middle and high school. They would talk for a while, then break apart again. This happened a few times. We walked around, looked at the art, stood in line (way too long, but that's how it always is), ate some chocolate-covered strawberries. As we left she said, "I broke the cardinal rule of being sixteen!"

"What's that?" I asked.

"You don't go to things like this with your parents!"

Funny, she seemed like she was having a fine time...
