Listen To Your Mother. ...

Some kids learn to listen to their mother.

Seems that Mom always knows best ... we found that out the hard way ...

We got caught in a giant lie: we said we were going to a friend's house after school; instead we went to the ice cream parlour, where we blew our allowance pay on hard candies and licorice whips.

Mom smelled the tailtale scent of candy upon our breath; yet we tried to tell her that we had it this morning, as a friend had given it to us.  Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie!  Mom could see the lies in our eyes and the guilt written all over our faces.

Now because of our being caught red-handed, we are grounded for the next few days.  That means no Internet/computer time, no going to our friend's houses to play, and of course, no television.  All we have to do is go to and from school, straight home, and work on any schoolwork and think about what we have done.

That really stinks 'cause this weekend is the Founder's Day Celebration here in beautiful downtown Burleson, Texas (which is where we live).  We were to have a booth set up and everything.  Now it seems that someone else has to run the dunk tank while we (meaning Ezeriah, my kid brother, and myself, Adam) have to do schoolwork, clean or do any chores that our parents happen to dump on us, and think about what we have done (the lying).

I don't know why we even bothered to take the candy when Mom specifically told us not to.  Now because of our stupidity, we have to suffer the consequences! UGH!
