My youngest is a very good kid… he does well in school and is set to attend a prestigious university next year. He mentors grade school kids. He has worked three jobs and saved a lot of money. Overall I’m very proud of him.
This is his senior year of high school. A large group of his friends (and chaperones) booked a trip to Cancun for spring break. He paid for it and it is at a very nice all inclusive resort. He is 18 and guess what the drinking age is in Mexico. I know he is going to drink… I went to Mexico in High School and may have had a sip or fifty.
I gave him one basic rule… “Don’t be stupid.”
Less than 12 hours into the trip the group found a cute animal on the resort grounds and I’m not sure if it was a dare or his idea, but he decided to pet it. It was a porcupine. The good news is that he is taking good care of his punctured hand and using antibiotics. I’m sure the Tequila is also helping with any pain.
