Parent’s Weekend Bet – The Result

Last night was all about the parent’s weekend bet.  My parents told me they were coming at 3, so to win the bet they had to stay more than 4 hours and 15 minutes (till 7:15).  Usually when my parents say 3, they really mean 2:45 so I was shocked when it was ten past three and I still hadn’t heard from them.  So I gave them a call to make sure nothing was wrong, and everything was fine.  My mom assured me that this is just a part of their new relaxed lifestyle.  After hearing those words I knew I was going to win. 

We had dinner reservations at 5:30.  If it had just been us three we would have left within an hour, but it was all of my roommates and their parents, so it took much longer.  After we finished our meals I peaked at the time and sure enough it was 7:15.  I immediately texted my brother to rub it in.  I WON!!!  And interestingly enough my parents actually stayed till 11, which is way past their bed time.  I never saw that coming.

Parent’s Weekend Bet


Parent’s Weekend is coming up, and my roommates and I have planned a dinner out with our parents.  Other than that I don’t think my parents will be doing much else.  So I had to make this more interesting for myself, and set a bet.  My brother set the over/under time of their departure at 7:15 pm.  Maybe to you this sounds like an easy over.  But if you know my parents, you would know they like to go to bed at 9, and like to be home as soon as possible after dinner, even though they’ll have nothing planned for the rest of the night.  Even for the Superbowl on Sunday, my mom doesn’t want to have a party cause she thinks it will go too late (the game’s at 6:30 pm) Are all parents like this or just mine?  My brother already took the under, so this is a tough call, but I’m going to accept the bet and take the over.
