My youngest son, that is.
This is his final year as a too-young-to-drive teen, and he has to put up with just two more semesters of me dashing out the door like a crazy person to drive him to school on time.
We’ve been cutting it close lately. Or, rather, I’ve been cutting it close.
But this morning was different – I was ready to go before James. By maybe a minute or two, but still … you other parents out there understand my delight, don’t you?
As I was chattering away to my not-quite-awake son about how much better I was doing with dropping him off to school earlier, something along the side of the road caught my eye:
Time to change out the billboards! Happy #Halloween Weekends start September 20. pic.twitter.com/v5Yfloru3J

And so, those two minutes of wiggle room evaporated as we pulled over so I could grab that photo (I waited till later to post it on Twitter).
James is good-natured, thankfully, and put up with my impromptu lecture about the wondrous punctuation change that was made to the new Happy Halloween Weekends billboard, one that makes me happy in a way only #GrammarHammer types can understand.
Meanwhile, let’s remind everyone again that we’re not open to the public this weekend (Saturday/Sunday, September 6 and 7) or next Sunday (September 14), as the parks are “bought out” for three days of corporate outings.
Calendar note: There is just one day left this season when you can visit both Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari, and that’s Saturday, September 13. Hope to see you then!
