Aaargh! I knew it. difficult child was lying. He has been so cranky lately, and his eyes have been bloodshot. And he's back to saying, "I don't care," and "It doesn't matter." He's also been highly interested in the legalization of pot in Calif, Colo, etc and thinks it should be legal in VA. He's been talking about it a lot lately. Since difficult child is grounded from the car for skipping his photography class, husband took the shared car to the car wash today. Vacuumed it, the whole 9 yards. Found a Gamestop bag under the seat with-what appears to be either spice or pot. It smells very sweet, like tea. That explains the two lighters, the skipped school and all that. So, there goes the car, the phones (one fell in the toilet but it came back to life but in the meantime, difficult child bought himself another one) and possibly the gaming equip that difficult child bought himself at Best Buy. (We always have a hard time taking away items that were gifts from other people, but gaming is a reward and privilege and difficult child has two Fs on his report card.) He should be home any minute. We'll have a family meeting and see what excuse he makes up about the bag.
