It all started with a trip to Mexico. Sue and I had been married for 10 years at the time and we decided to re-visit Cancun, where we had spent our first honeymoon. So, leaving Sarah, our daughter, who was about 9 years old, with her grandparents, we set off; confident in the ability of our teenage sons to act responsibly in our absence. We were half right in our judgment.
Though I looked everywhere, I never did locate him and he returned to school unbeknownst to us, on the 5th day. This is the point at which the school authorities got involved and notified DSS. It’s also where this story begins to get interesting, and funny.
