So here's the deal. My daughter is turning 13 this weekend. She wants to have a big slumber party Saturday night with a bunch of her girl friends and apparently she doesn't want an old pervert like me, or even my non-perverted but older sons hanging around in the house while this whole thing is going on.
So I get a call at work from my wife telling me this, and asking me to go up north to our cabin for the weekend. At this point she tells me she's already told my sons to stay at their girl friends houses on Saturday night and it's all set.
So I tell her at the moment I don't have the requisite beer, gas and food money required for this kind of venture, and she says she'll write me a cheque to cover it, as long as it's reasonable. And she did.
I feel a little manipulated by my wife, and hurt that my daughter is shunning me, but on the other hand, I'm heading up north in my Jeep on an all expenses paid frolic for a day and a night of fun in the bush with the usual suspects
