Yeesh, Wednesday already?
So I had just pulled into church for choir practice this evening, when I got a phone call. The Boy’s number came up on the caller ID, and I was immediately thinking: what does he want this time?
“I took the GED pre-test today, and passed everything. Even the math part.”
Doubly good news — not just that he passed, but he finally got arsed to take the freeking test in the first place!
“Yeah, so I take the real test on November 17. If I pass that, I’m going to tech school to be an electrician.”
Another piece of good news: he’s finally looking at a Plan B if his music career doesn’t happen. Not a bad choice either; it’s a skill that’s usually in demand. He should do well at it; I taught him how to solder when he was 4, and I’ve done plenty of wiring myself (although I draw the line on this side of live circuits).
So if he’ll stick to this, maybe that’s a little light at the end of the tunnel.
