I know Mrs. Grinstead is awesome. Really, really awesome. But I had one of those hunches moms’ get.
“Any chance she gave you one of the seniors’ meatball sandwiches, Tad?” I asked.
He looked surprised. “Well, yeah, in fact she did.” Then he broke into a grin. “I had to reach over the seniors to get a napkin cuz, you know, meatball sandwiches are messy. The seniors looked at me like they were wondering what the heck a junior was doing here. A non-football playing junior. Before they started thinking they should ‘remove me from the premises,’ I decided I would just make a quick exit.”
