All the sudden he's repentant -- kinda. Cuz he got desperate. C***** needed a ride somewhere. So he comes clean on everything. He stole. He lied. Started telling me everything I already knew while I was at the coffee shop and he was talking to me on the phone. I let him have it and probably entertained the entire establishment. So if you hear rumors, it might be true.
So he's desperate and begging for a fresh start. Like #1,736 of his young life. Which of course, I will give him but knowing that based on history it will last only until he has what he wants and something better comes along. But you know what I think?
I think one of these times maybe, just maybe, it's going to work. You know what I'm saying? Maybe one of these times something will stick. Most rebellious teenagers have a moment when they turn around right?
Maybe if we can hang on long enough, he'll get there. And at least now that things are out in the open he won't be as slinky for a while.
ONe of these times he just has to get it, you know?
