A Late Chat Production
Levi is your eleven year old son and Jeff is his best friend who is also eleven. Jeff is staying with you this weekend while his parents are out of town. Levi is subject to spanking if he earns a punishment. You have permission to punish Jeff, including spanking, if needed.
Both boys are part of a local indoor soccer league and are supposed to have practice this morning. There was a snow fall last night. You drive the boys to the practice venue not knowing that practice was called off due to the weather. You drop the boys off and head home and tell them to call you when they are ready to come home. The boys find out there is no practice and, instead of calling you , decide to walk home.
Your community is close knit and lots of the neighbors know you and Levi and Jeff. The community has a "it takes a village" mindset. You begin to get phone calls.
Mrs. Brown, a fellow parent in the soccer league, says she saw the boys stomping in the snow near the practice venue spelling out dirty words.
Miss Wiggenbottom, an elderly neighbor, complains that the boys "wrote" their names in yellow in her side yard.
Mr. Davis, also a neighbor, says he and his young son spent all morning building a snowman and that Levi and Jeff came in to his yard and knocked it over.
Mr. Carlson, who lives on the next street, says the boys were throwing snowballs at his cat.
You are headed out to find the boys. As you open the door you see that the boys are home.
Good thing you don't have to drive anywhere right now because the boys just urinated in the door locks on your car and the locks are now frozen.
How do you deal with the little pranksters?
