Meet Bo, he is 100 percent Lao. When we were living in our old neighborhood, the neighborhood kids used to call him Tiger Woods, he would try to correct them, ‘If I were Tiger Woods, would I be living in this neighborhood?’ But still, when ever they saw him walking Teddy, they would say ‘Hey Tiger Woods!’
Several years back, he went to a conference in Denver Colorado and flew there with 2 of his co-workers. His work place booked him an economy (coach) class seat and he sat next to a lady. After he sat down, she asked if he was Tiger Woods. A bit amused but he was used to the kids calling him that, so he said, ’If I were Tiger Woods, would I be sitting in a Coach Class?’ That was over 5 years ago.
Well, as of right now, there is a good chance that he might be attending the White House Beer Summit after what had happened yesterday. It was the second day of school and Lee decided that she wanted to ride a school bus home, which I told Bo to let her try it out to see if she would like it. Lee is not a latchkey kid, our flexible work schedules allow one of us to stay home with her at all times. As of this year, I knew of several American parents that couldn’t afford to pay for their children after school program, so they became the latchkey kids where they would come home to an empty house with no supervision, they are as young as 7 or 8 years old, too young to be left alone in my opinion.
Lee teacher is Mrs. Bond, this should foretell that there will be a lot of action this year. Lee was a bit nervous, she memorized her bus number so she won’t get on the wrong bus, but I think Bo was more nervous than her. He went to the bus stop early to wait for her, not knowing for sure what time the school bus would drop her off. He was 25 minutes early, stood around at the school bus stop, and played with his iPhone, studying for his upcoming Professional exam, then a cop car pulled up. He informed Bo that one of the neighbors called to report of a suspicious person and asked for his identification. Bo told the cop that he lives down the road and was waiting for his daughter that‘s riding a school bus, and he fumbled with his wallet to get his ID. He took out his work ID, another ID, then his driver license. The cop checked him out and left, it’d have been funny if they were to take him in.
He told the bus driver of what happened, then she asked him if he is going to press charges, and maybe he would get to attend the next Beer Summit. I thought that was funny, this is a nice neighborhood and we moved here almost 6 years ago, and Bo walks Max several times a day in the neighborhood, kind of surprised that this neighbor didn’t recognize him. He asked Lee if he looked like a criminal, and she said ‘Just a little bit.’ I think Bo is ready to move back to our old neighborhood, looking like Tiger Woods is a lot better than looking like a criminal.
