An Ivor Production
You come home from work a couple of hours early one afternoon. It had been a quiet day and you thought it would be good to spend some time relaxing. You get indoors, look out through the window into the back garden (yard is that to you?) and see:
your 15 year old son Lee and Holly-Jo, the girl of the same age who lives next door. The two have been friends for some time.
But, beer and cigarettes!
You tell Lee to go inside and to his room and that you will deal with him shortly. He knows this means he is going to get his butt whipped. Then you tell Holly-Jo to go home and that you will be round later on to tell her father what you found them doing.
Lee is still there and hears what you say. He pleads with you not to tell her father. You ask why you shouldn't. He says it was his beer and cigarettes. You say that doesn't change things. The pair exchange glances, she nods and he says:
"If you tell her parents she'll get the hairbrush from her Mom. That's wicked. Can't you give me a double whipping instead."
What are you going to do?
