Last night we were doing the soccer parents thing, Elizabeth cut out early to go to a home schooling meeting, I took the kids home in the Minivan and she took the Miata. I was expecting her home about 8:30. At 9 she called and said she'd be home shortly not to worry. Since the McCain - Obama debate was on I was not paying too much attention to the time. At 11:00 the phone rang - she'd lost track of time and after the coffee shop closed they brought the discussion to the parking lot. At 10:50 a police car pulled up to the collection of cars in the parking lot and pointed out the time - all the stores closed nearly two hours earlier. It was time for them to move along or risk a loitering charge. They didn't need a second warning and we're on their way home promptly.
