The Note I Found Folded in My Lunchbox

"Hey Mary-

Have a good day at school today!

Do you think you could pick up some milk on the way home from school…your father used the last of it…AGAIN-without replacing it.

Also, don't forget to pick up your brother from soccer practice! I have a meeting so I won't be home until after dinner. There are some leftovers in the fridge…make sure you cover them when you put them in the microwave!

Have a good day at school today!


I ripped the note in half, crumpled the two individual pieces and tossed them toward the trash can.

One for Mom.

One for Dad.
