One day after school this week we had Ben’s friend Lauren over after school to decorate gingerbread houses. They had alot of fun and created quite the masterpieces. When Lauren’s mom came to pick her up we decided to go grab some dinner together. Dave and Cooper were out together having dinner with another friend, so it was just Ben and I along with Lauren and her mom Vicki. We decided on Applebees, since it was close. As we were getting ready to leave, Ben asked if I could give him $20 and just drop him and Lauren off at Applebees. When I asked him what Vicki and I would eat, he said “you two could go to McDonalds”.
