Riding in Cars with Boys - Part Ten

I know it's been a while. It's not that funny stuff hasn't been happening, it's just that so much of it is contextual and really hard to put into a blog post. We haven't seen a lot of Mitchell this year since he's on a slightly different educational track and spends most afternoons on a different campus, but for the last couple weeks I've been bringing him to school in the mornings.

Now, a typical morning without Mitchell involves Killian sleeping between texts from his girlfriend, Corwin sleeping and Justin sleeping. It's usually a quiet ride other than the occasional snore from Corwin and the tapping of Killian's super fast texting skills.

A morning with Mitchell is far different. This is how the first week went.

Monday - Mitchell gets in the car and immediately snuggles up to Justin and lays his head on Justin's shoulder.

Justin: For fuck's sake, Mitchell. Get off me!

Mitchell: I'm sleepy. You're warm.

Tuesday - same scene.

Justin: Damn it, Mitchell! What is wrong with you?

Mitchell: (head butting Justin's shoulder and purring like a cat)

Justin: Really, Mitchell? Really?

Mitchell: My girlfriend says I'm cuddly.

Wednesday - same scene except now Mitchell puts his head on Justin's shoulder and wraps his arm around Justin's chest.

Justin: The only way this would be remotely acceptable is if you turn into a hot nerdy chick that plays W.o.W. Are you going to turn into a hot nerdy chick who plays W.o.W.?

Mitchell: Nope.

Justin: This is unacceptable.

Thursday - same scene except that Justin puts his arm around Mitchell's shoulders.

Justin: I give up. (pats Mitchell's head) Go to sleep, buddy. (Looks at me in the rearview mirror and shrugs) It's just easier to let him have his way.

He's probably right...

LOLOL! OMG, Mitchell cracks me up. I'm also completely tickled that these boys have not fear of NOT being accepted by each other for breaking that "guy space" barrier. :)

Hahaha!!! Too awesome! Having anywhere from three to six teenage boys here at any given time -- I can totally see this. :-)

This is awesomesauce, as my nephew would say. I hate that I no longer take him to school.

Mitchell is a riot. I think he is keeping his friends from boring each other. Now Mitchell needs to branch out to sleeping on the other guys occasionally.
