He doesn't say anything quietly, so luckily for me, it was said while we were still at home! He said it because I told him that several years ago I had 4 over due books on my card. Long over due because I couldn't find them. They told me I owed $90 for the books, but then I found them and returned them. They told me I still had to pay the $90 because I took too long. I refused to pay it, so I can't use my library card anymore!

Um, just how long did it take you to return them???

She never returns books. For all I know, it could have been decades.

That's enough, you two!! It wasn't decades, only a year or two. The books were returned exactly as they were when they were taken off the self, considering I had gotten them for Luke and he never even opened one of them! Also, I checked the catalog and the library had not replaced them, so they could still be put back on the shelves.

A YEAR OR TWO??? Honestly, I thought you were going to say a few months! I once returned a book one day late and I could hardly sleep that night. How do you live with yourself?? What kind of example are you setting for your poor children?

I don't know...given the evidence, I have to believe that you're probably in denial and that it was, in fact, decades.

You said in the past that you never thought that a child of yours would go to jail, but now I'm starting to see the big picture...
