“Okay,” Danny said. “Tomorrow’s the day, so we need to check to make sure we have everything we need.” Danny glanced at his list. “Jack, did you bring you SodaStream carbonater?”
“Check,” Jack said. “It should work fine to aerate the concoction.”
“Sammy, did you go to the zoo and get the secret ingredient??” Danny asked.
“Check,” Sammy said, laughing. “It was a dirty job but someone had to do it.”
“Okay, good. I’ve got the chocolate, so we’ll meet at my house right after school, mix up a batch, and then bake it for 30 minutes,” Danny said.
The next day, the boys invited their sisters to taste the brownies they had just baked. They served each girl a large brownie. Jack’s sister said, “Wow, these are surprisingly good.”
“Thanks,” Danny said. “It’s our secret ingredient.”
“These are delicious,” Sammy’s sister said. “What exactly is your secret ingredient?”
“Yes,” Danny’s sister said, “please gratify our curiosity.”
“Take my word for it, girls,” Danny said, while Jack ans Sammy were snickering, “you really don’t want to know.”
