Your sister is getting married soon. Sean has had a growth spurt and has outgrown his shoes. School is almost out for the year.
You decide to take Sean to get him some new shoes that he can wear as a guest to the wedding and also use for school and, hopefully, use to start school in again in August. You ask Sean to be careful with the shoes at least until the wedding and suggest he not wear them to play around in, etc.
Here is Sean arriving in from after school yesterday:
You don't give the flip-flops any thought as the weather has turned very warm and there is no prohibition in the school dress code. Sean has been wearing the flip-flops all week.
Today is the day of the wedding and you are checking to see if your son is ready. Sean is dressed in his nice slacks and collared shirt but you note he is wearing the flip-flops. You tell Sean to change to his new shoes. Sean gets pale and mumbles out, "I can't." You, of course, ask why and Sean tells what happened.
The past week, on his way home from school, Sean stopped off at the park to play some pick-up baseball with some friends. (He is allowed to do this.) Sean says he was wearing the new shoes so he took them off to keep them nice and put them on a bench. Sean says when he finished the game and went to get his shoes that they were missing. Sean says he didn't say anything to you because he didn't want you to be mad.
Are you mad? What do you do? Will Sean be shoe-less at the wedding?
