My mom didn't know I was ridesharing

Well, at about 2 p.m. I got a message from Mr. David Yin offering me a ride ALL THE WAY to Niagara Falls. Whoah. I couldn't turn that one down.

So in a few hours, I was on the road to Niagara. David's a pretty interesting fellow. He works as a policy analyst for Environment Canada on some Arctic projects. We talked about my upcoming trip there, and generally had a relaxing time.

About an hour away from Niagara, I realized that I was going to be 1 hour early at the bus station. I tried to call my parents to tell them but they weren't at home. So, I called Grandma, and she said they left "a long time ago". Why would they leave so early? What is there really to do in Niagara Falls so late at night? I had no idea. We drove to the bus station anyway, figuring I'd just wait there until they showed up in an hour.

We turned a corner when what did I see? My dad, driving his car, turning left.

"Pull a U-ey, pull a U-ey! That's my dad!"

"Oh good lord, this is WAY more than I bargained for"

Dave reluctantly turned the car around and we caught up to my parents at the next red light, beeping and waving frantically.

My mom and dad are laughing, and can't believe that they created such a strange creature.

What happened was, that my parents had to go BOWLING. They were in the middle of their game when my uncle called saying that their daughter was waiting for them at the bus stop. What did they do? They FINISHED THEIR GAME and then went to go get her.

After they found me, they took me BACK TO THE BOWLING ALLEY to finish their THIRD GAME. Oh my. Anyway, after that, we went home to bed.
