An ivor Production
At the start of this school year the school that your son Mikey, who has just turned 15, attends announced that it was linking with a school in Slovakia. Rather to your surprise Mikey appears to have developed a relationship with Petr a boy of similar age there.
They seem to spend a lot of time emailing each other - fortunately Petr's English is very good which is a lot more than can be said about Mikey's Slovak.
A couple of days ago Mikey, came to you asking if you would pay for him to go on holiday this summer (which is only a month or so away) to stay with Petr in Slovakia along with two of his best friends who he says have also established good friendships with other boys there. It seems the Slovak families are happy to accommodate the boys at no cost.
Over the years Mikey has been at times a bit of a brat and the idea of him spending time in Bratislava does, as you tell him, have some appeal. You also told him you would consider making a contribution towards the cost, but if he really wanted to go then he should set about earning some of the money himself.
This evening you drive home from work to see outside your house:
Mikey attired in the speedos that Petr, a very keen swimmer, sent him at Christmas, but which your SO has very firmly told him should only be worn when swimming.
Are you going to tell Mikey to get his wash leather and start on your car or is that speedo clad butt of his soon going to feel the leather of your belt?
