I didn't realize that Laura isn't "allowed" to see you. I know she's young, but she is a legal adult, right? Why would her parents still be telling her what she can and cannot do? Or is it one of those "as long as you're under my roof..." kind of things? If that's the case, I suppose she can always move in with you, if she so desires.
All told, it is still better that you told the truth rather than lying.
Well, she's not yet 18; nevertheless, it is a situation of, "as long as you're under my roof".
I left home at 17, but the world is a harder place now than it was in my day, when student welfare was easy to come by.
Sounds like normal over-protective parent reaction.
Why would they make THAT kind of a phone call.
I speak..only out of personal experience (and yes...parents like this are always known to be 'very nice'.

Yeah, I'm not too upset. As someone else suggested in (I think) this thread, they're actually pretty good about accepting me, rather than threatening to castrate me.
An unfortunate turn of events. But don't burden yourself with all of the blame here, my friend. You didn't know that she wasn't supposed to be there and your honesty doesn't make you a bad person. It's hard to keep a little white lie for someone else and I know for myself, it's pretty impossible. Soon enough you'll both look back on this and laugh really, really hard. ;)
I have been in this predicament before. Despite how mine ended up, I am sure your situation will turn out splendidly.

Re: Speed of Light
Yes, 186,000 miles per second. Which is just what I said. You were quoting what I thought was actually a metric figure for the mean distance of the Earth from the sun - something like 150,000,000 miles, you said.

Re: Speed of Light
I feel like I'm in a time-warp, since I spoke with you a couple of hours before I read this post.
Still, I'm glad you had fun - and pleased to see you deal so well with being wrong.

I know we've already discussed this, but I must publically make it known how pleased I am that you've decided to take the plunge; it's an excellent browser, isn't it?
