When we were done making the centerpieces, Dad dropped me off at the hotel, and I went to my room to grab my swimsuit and towel.
When I opened the door I was surprised to see Rex there with Jared, Sam, and Joe.
"You guys didn't go to the pool?" I asked.
"Oh, we're going," replied Rex.
Then I noticed that the four of them were all drinking beer. "Um, Rex," I said, "Where did these kids get beer from?"
"Oh, I bought it for them," he replied.
"He scored us some porn, too!" said Jared, patting his backpack and smiling.
At that I broke down laughing.
"What?" asked Rex. I continued laughing as I came in the room and sat on the bed. "What? What's so funny?" he asked.
"You're funny," I said. "Rex, I want to be annoyed with you for this, but I can't, it's just too funny."
"I don't see that it's so funny," said Rex, and he got this kind of perplexed smile on his face as if he wasn't sure how he'd managed to do something charmingly amusing by accident. The boys just looked at each other as they continued drinking their beer.
"Well, maybe it's just my perception of it," I said, going over to the bathroom where more beers were sitting in ice in the sink. "Do you mind?" I asked.
