Should Have Waited For the Adults
By Teresa Smeigh 2019
The locksmith was muttering to himself. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson had said it was ok to go ahead and unlock the door. The kids were there and locked in. They didn’t understand dead bolts and so they needed him to go and unlock the door for them so they could go to school.
They should be fed as they had a carton of easter eggs left over from Easter and Tommy could pour the juice.
Great plan except for Tommy wasn’t so smart. His mama had made room in the fridge by putting regular uncooked eggs in the carton with the leftover cooked Easter eggs. Tommy poured himself and his sister a glass of juice and then cracked a hard boiled egg which was hard, juiceless, as he put it. The next egg he cracked was a juicy one as it hadn’t been cooked yet. It splashed all over the table.
Mr Johnson was greeted to the sight of the kids drinking their juice and hardboiled eggs and spooning up the uncooked ones with a spoon and eating them. Just then the bus arrived. He shooed them off, cleaned up the mess, and didn’t tell Mrs. Martin what happened. She had enough to worry about with those two kids.
