A Jack/RL Production
It's 9:15 am on a Friday morning. You're home today. The kids are at school. You're not sure why they're at school, because there was snow forecast to start about 9am, and your township doesn't have enough cold weather for you to be able to deal with the issue. Still, it was only a 55% chance of snow, so you bundled the kids up and got them all delivered.
Now, the snow is coming down, and you (and 90% of the other parents in the school district) just received a text that the schools are closing at 10am, and the buses will be running at 10:30, to get all the kids home before the weather gets too bad.
Of course, you're not as someone who largely works for home, and many, many other parents are at work already, so you start receiving a lot of texts and calls to see if you are willing and able to pick their kids up and watch them until they're off work.
Skip forward 90 minutes. You've made a list by school, texted your older boys as to their pick up assignments, and have, yourself, taken out the passenger vans to make pickups where you either don't have room or none of your kids attend. Everyone has been notified not to go anywhere until you get back and okay it. You've left strict instructions that they can have snacks or play in the snow, but they're not to leave your property, so that you'll be able to account for everyone, and make sure no one has been overlooked.
You're finally back, everyone is running inside to drop off their books before getting down to the serious business of playing in the first snow they've had in your area in several years, but you're keeping the groups separate, and you have everyone lined up. The only person missing is Nate Routh.
You look again, and you're getting ready to drive back to the intermediate school he attends, when he walks up to you.
You are morally certain that he wasn't out with the group playing in the snow when you got home. You called them in and double checked when you checked them in. Also, Nate doesn't live too far from you, and you've spanked him before for going to his house, when he wasn't supposed to leave your house.
Are you going to get that snow off him, then warm him up? What if he says you just missed him, and insists he was just outside, even though no one saw him or knew where he was? Also, what about his Nintendo 3DS that he has with him, even though he's not supposed to take it to school?
