Monday, difficult child called me for a ride home from school. Nothing unusual about that, except that it was a bit early. He is 20yo, and has a suspended license. He does not live at home. I really didn't feel like going out again, and was already in my jammies. So, I said, "I lost my chauffeurs license today." He asked what it would take to get it back. I said, "oh, about $200." He started chuckling and we had a nice laugh off of it. The conversation ended with him saying he would call someone else. This was one of the few times I came out with a joke naturally. It just so fits the situation. He has an IOU that he pays on every payday, and it is at about $200.
