It Happened At Daycare

Writer's prompt - It happened at daycare from Mama's Losin' It.

When my kids were younger they went to a variety of daycare centers. Both home run, church run, hospital run and a privately owned local daycare center.

The privately owned local daycare center was a well run establishment. Lots of friendly staff. We didn't really know any of the other parents, but got an invite from one of them for a birthday party for their child. The daycare center owner took us aside and told us not to go to the party. She provided no explanation why we shouldn't go. So my mind wandered...considering all the possibilities...

Could the parents be drug dealers or gang members?
Could the parents own guns in the household?
Are the couple weirdos or clingy people who once you go to an event you can't have any peace?
Could the place where they live be a dump?
Is the husband a screamer/abuser?

I don't know the answer, but my curiosity was getting the best of me. Still, we did not go. What would you have done? Would you have gone to find out for yourself if one of my possibilities was true, or even something I never considered?

Oh, I would have definitely done my best to find out WHY the The daycare center owner told you NOT to go.

And, the "need" to know probably would have driven me so crazy, that I would have attended the party just to search for clues!

Me too! What if it was nothing and that poor child had no guests at the party?
