“Absolutely,” Evan said. “That’s what makes it fun.”
“I’m going to tell Mom. You’ll be in real trouble then,” Tim said.
“Oh big deal,” Evan laughed. “What’s the worst that can happen? She’ll call me on the carpet. Being scolded by mom is no big deal.”
“No big deal you say,” the boys’ Mom said when she heard the commotion in the backyard. “Here you are doing something both illegal and dangerous while standing in the middle of my prized rose garden. This intrusion into my sanctuary is unacceptable and you are grounded for two weeks. No TV, no computer, no phone. That’s it, mister. Next time you think being called in the carpet by your mother is no big deal, remember this day.”
“Yes ma’am,” Evan said.
