Jonathan is in T.R.O.U.B.L.E



Over the holidays Jonathan learned a horrible, no good, very bad thing.


It seems that at the end of the month when he will be traveling to Orlando for his senior class trip, Nonna and Nonno will be there, too.


You should have seen the looks around the Christmas dinner table when this little fact came out. Nonna and Nonno were excited, Jonathan was horrified, and the rest of us were laughing.


Nonna and Nonno gather information: exact dates of Jonathan's trip, his itinerary, and the name of the resort in which he will be staying. Then Nonna whips out her cell phone to make sure that Jonathan's number is in there.


"We'll stop by one evening," Nonna says. "We'll just say hi."


"No we won't," Nonno says. "We're going to come and hang out in your room."


Jonathan looks horrified.


"We'll buy you and your friends some ice cream," Nonna says.


Jonathan looks a little better. But still ...


Nonna and Nonno. In Orlando. During the senior class trip.


It's a horrible, no good, very bad thing with ice cream.


Jonathan
