Even though my boys are now both teenagers, I still catch myself treating them like little kids, so I did feel timid about leaving them at home for the whole day to take the train to New York for the US Open. I realized I didn’t have any real fears that they couldn’t handle themselves when a friend asked what I worried would happen, and the worst I realistically pictured was them sitting in a pile of filth not having eaten for 12 hours while on a World of Warcraft marathon.
So my husband and I had a lovely day in New York. It was my first time at the tournament, and I’m glad I went. Where else can you get a can of beer for $7.50?
It was great seeing the action up close on the small side courts. I caught myself saying ridiculous things like, “Oh, I could have gotten that volley.”
The boys were fine. They were still on Warcraft sitting where we left them. When I asked Dan what he did all day, he said, “I pwned some noobs.”
