Kevin has a tendency of hanging out after practice, playing with the other kids, watching other practices, and not bothering to come home for little things like homework, chores, and dinner.
At first, you just blew it off, not really knowing how long his practice was running. Then you got annoyed enough to check with his coach. When you found out that he was coming home long after practice finished, you chewed him up one side and down the other, before he told you exactly what he was doing.
He got home on time a few days after that, but last week, after more warnings, you warmed his little rear for him, and promised him an upgrade next time. He's been on time the last several practices. Until now.
Kevin swears this really was practice... kind of. One of the boys is really upset, because he's a terrible hitter, so Kev stayed after practice to help him.
Is his friend the only one getting practice hitting tonight?
