Setting the Scene: This Friday is homecoming at Tyler’s school. The football parents are doing a huge BBQ tailgate fundraiser. The following conversation took place when Matt and I were discussing our tailgate plans.
He Said: So how many people do we have coming?
She Said: 27 people in total, including kids.
He Said: So we’re buying the BBQ in bulk. And you’re bringing the buns.
She Said: I always bring the buns.
He Said: Funny.
She Said: Yes I’m bringing the buns, and chips, and potato salad. And we’ll buy the desserts from the bake sale.
He Said: Wait. You’re bringing the brownies to sell at the bake sale. And then we have to buy them back to eat at the tailgate?
She Said: Yep.
He Said: That’s not right.
She Said: It’s what we’re doing. Just get on board with it.
He Said: Can’t you just make a double batch and we’ll eat half of them while we tailgate?
She Said: That’s not how it’s done. The bake sale is a huge fundraiser. Do you want to be the only parent not buying stuff from the bake sale? These fundraisers are what pay for football equipment for our team.
He Said: Well then we should sell beer and alcohol. We’d make a killing.
She Said: Not appropriate tailgate behavior.
He Said: We’re not appropriate tailgate people.
She Said: Truer words have never been spoken.
