Me: Where are you going?
Tornado E stood at the door, holding the door open.
Tornado E: We should get ice cream. You owe me ice cream.
Me: For what?
Tornado E: I got a 96% on my reading test.
Tornado S struggles with spelling test. A B gets him a candy bar. An A gets him ice cream. A 100% gets him any dessert at the French bakery. Half Tornado S’s problem is writing fast and neat.
Tornado E has no such problems. He has a laziness problem.
Tornado E: And a while back I got 100% on my spell pre-test. So let’s get ice cream.
At this point, Tornado A was next to him smiling.
Me: And who’s paying?
Tornado A ran out of the room and ran back with his wallet.
Tornado A: I WILL!!!
He ran out the door. I ran after him.
Me: Wait! We have to eat dinner first! It’s ready in 5 minutes!
Thank goodness I had the keys. I think he would’ve left us all.
