         Local Southern California Parents worried because their son has yet to pack with one week left until school starts.

One week before school is set to start, tensions are reportedly high in the Lee household as Hudson’s parents Bob and Teresa are expressing anxiety over their son leaving for college.

While they are enormously proud of their son for getting into Berkeley, they are beginning to get worried at the fact their son has not yet begun to pack for what Mrs. Lee calls “the biggest adventure of my little Hudson’s life.”

When confronted about the issue that he had yet to begin packing, Hudson responded that he would “get on it sometime later” before turning back to the playing Super Smash Brothers with his friends.

More recently his parents have taken a more passive aggressive approach. Hudson’s mother has taken to leaving a luggage case directly on the staircase while Hudson’s father has now wears a Cal hat every time he goes outside.

According to Hudson’s extremely unqualified psychologist friend Brian, “Hudson doesn’t want to pack largely because packing means that he really will be leaving home for the next year.”

Hudson’s mother has also been urging Hudson to learn how to do his own damn laundry as “she won’t be around forever.”

According to Hudson’s extremely unqualified psychologist friend Brian, “Hudson doesn’t want to pack largely because packing means that he really will be leaving home for the next year.”

Worried that her son doesn’t have enough warm clothing, Mrs. Lee took it upon herself to make several trips to Target to buy the puffy west coast jackets that scientists in the Antarctic region wear to fend off blizzards.

While Hudson grossly misunderstimated the time it took to do his college applications and turned in his Cal application the night before, it can only be hoped that he doesn’t treat his luggage the same way.
