That's really a rhetorical question. But, A wants to "get together" with a female friend from school, so I set up a chance for him to go to the Relient K concert and take her along. Logistically, it's a nightmare. It's at the U of C, it's general admission, standing room only, three bands, a school night, she has martial arts beforehand so they will arrive an hour after the doors open and I have another event I should be at.
I don't know what order the bands are performing. I've no idea what the crowd will be like, or what the age group will be. (not old). If I go as chaperone, would I be the only 40 something there? (not that it would bother ME).
If he was your kid, would you let him go unchaperoned?
At least her mom insists on meeting A first. That's a good sign.
