She's OUT OF STATE at a wedding. Her friend Sue was on the other line. ( I don't know whether Sue was at the same wedding or at home.) I teach Sue's son. He's a nice enough kid but does absolutely nothing outside of the classroom-- no homework, no projects. He's bright enough that he can usually get by. He was out of school on Friday and for some reason (parental request??) his guidance counselor wanted to know what work was missing. I told her that he was missing a project that had been due before Memorial Day. My sister said that Sue wanted the project info. It's Sunday afternoon, the day before the last day of school. I told my sister to tell Sue that she wasn't able to get a hold of me. I hated asking my sister to lie to her friend, but her friend is the one who put her into that position. Can you believe the nerve????
