Tonight, my best friend asked me if I wanted to go skating with him. Since I was bored, I said yes. I left a message on my mom's cell phone (since she wasn't home at the time) and out the door I went skating. Now, my mom always tells me that I need to make friends. Now since my best friend I were there at the skating rink from opening to almost closing (we left around 10:40/10:45pm) and there weren't a lot of people there I made a few friends. I made friends with two male 8th graders who were fun to hang out with, three 9th grade girls, and a group of 11th grade girls who were avoiding my best friend and I like the freakin' plague. Overall, it was a great night (better than last week's football/fracturing arm incident). I get home at 11pm, and who's waiting there pissed? If you answered my mom, you win... you win nothing, but that's beside the point. She said I shouldn't be out so late as I'm only 15 and a sophomore and that there's a curfew in the city (like the cops would bust into a skating rink full of kids, teenagers, and parents ) and that I could've went to Juvienile Hall. I told her that she's always telling me to make friends and I made friends tonight. She was still pissed, made some snide remarks how I will never step foot out of my house for a while, and went back to bed. What should I do (and what you guys do if you were my parents)? My mom knew where I was, and I'm not a trouble maker. My best friend and I said we have to do this again next Saturday as most of the people we met are returning next Saturday. Oh well, my friend did make a nice comment about me: "I hate to say this, but you're getting pimper."
