I sat in a chair like a school teacher in an empty classroom.
But instead of students, it was my boys I waited for.
"It’s ten minutes to two, where are they?”
I watched the door and the clock.
Then the door swung open and they began to walk through it.
I took attendance (mentally).
Jason is here.
Patrick is here.
Damien is here.
All eight of them are here.
I sighed. They all made it through the weekend without being arrested or shot.
"Alright guys, take a seat and let's get started."
